The BWF team was honored today to have the author of the BWF Cell Phone Survey Application, Sam Hammond, come explain and take feedback on the app. The app allows SWEs to record basic survey information, water test results and educational activities day-to-day.

The U.S. team met with all the experienced SWEs who were essential in helping the new recruits download and begin using the app. All met the challenge – even with spotty internet coverage.

Sam received app feedback from the group, and Jocelyn (his new wife) gave him her full support. SWEs then practiced household surveys and entering data. Afterward Dennis showed the new group how to identify appropriate survey households by systematic sampling.

Our Momma Victoria (Guest House caretaker) prepared a Ghanaian feast for an exquisite dinner with Stephen and Margaret Abu. While we fell a bit short on meeting all of today’s goals, we could not squeeze in another moment of BWF work today.
