Shelter Officer at UNHCR recommended KwikSense where georges is Co-Founder
I was impressed by determination and quick-wittedness of the KwikSense team since the first time I met them during hackathon event supported by UNHCR in June 2016. The team worked on the Shelter challenge “Monitoring the living conditions in substandard shelter during the winter to better target the humanitarian winter support” and developed a prototype of sensor device that can measure, in real time, temperatures inside shelters and send data via internet to an online database.
Supported by UNHCR, of which I am part of, the team developed the prototype into functional product and deployed some devices for testing/pilot in the field, last winter. In charge of the Shelter Unit of UNHCR, I have worked closely with the team throughout the testing period, during which the team showed a worthy commitment, proactivity and high sense of drive for results.
