Esoko is on the field deploying our latest data collection project with Insyt technology. The Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty is a Government of Ghana initiative to identify the extremely poor (disabled, mothers and infants, over 65, orphans) and issue them with cash transfers.
This project covers 8 out of the 10 regions of Ghana, and has 300 teams of 5 people all over the country interviewing people on android tablets to feed into a real-time scoring system that the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection uses to qualify people for the program. The contract stipulates 380,000 people interviewed, aiming for 150,000 recipients. Esoko is deploying 1,671 field personnel with 275 supervisors for a 3 month engagement.
Below are some images from the field:
