Civicom Aid is a non-profit organization that aims to help smallholder farmers in rural and dryland areas increase crop production. There are four types of volunteers that the team is seeking to build open-source solutions in the cloud to detect crop pests and crop diseases.

  1. Builders: These volunteers will lead the technical development of the solution, bringing coding skills and technical knowledge to turn ideas into a working reality.

  2. Designers: These volunteers will ensure that the solution is user-friendly and visually appealing. They will bring creative vision to technical problem-solving, making what is built sleek and easy to use.

  3. Communicators: These volunteers will play an essential role in articulating the problem and defining how the solution can make a difference. They will have strong communication skills and be able to simplify complex ideas to inspire others.

  4. Humanitarians: These volunteers will understand the complex problems faced by smallholder farmers in a truly human way and will be committed to finding a solution that makes a demonstrable difference. They will lead the team with a focus on the needs of the community, while also considering the individual user.

It's important to note that most farmers in rural and dryland areas may not have access to smartphones or reliable charging systems. This is a challenge that the team will need to consider when developing the open-source solutions. The solutions will need to be accessible to these farmers and work within their technological limitations. However, with the right team of volunteers, innovative and practical solutions can be developed to help these smallholder farmers increase their crop production and improve their livelihoods.

If you are passionate about using your skills to help smallholder farmers, we encourage you to reach out to us and join our team.
