nSight, with its partners and associates, is currently involved in several activities throughout Eastern and Western Africa:
- Weather Station installation and maintenance as a Food Security Initiative collaborative partner of the Rocky Mountain Consortium for Global Development (RMCGD).
- Aid Surveys: nSight has developed a smartphone application for unique locally-sourced Aid Surveys that gather information about local infrastructure and conditions that will aid humanitarian support and assistance activities.
The weather stations are modern network-connected sensor systems that, through aWhere’s cloud-based databases, offer African governments and farmers free real-time, localized, and accurate weather data to which they normally do not have access.
nSight has installed a total of 32 weather stations within five countries in Eastern and Western Africa. These stations are maintained by nSight in conjunction with local partners within the respective countries.
- Mali (16)
- South Sudan (8)
- Kenya (4)
- Uganda (2)
- Nigeria (2)
The Aid Surveys are conducted by remunerated local citizens and gather information about local infrastructure and conditions that will aid humanitarian support and assistance activities. This information will be databased and available to NGOs and local governments with the aim of facilitating current and/or future humanitarian missions and infrastructure development.
There are currently 5 surveys that have been developed for the nSight Aid Survey Application:
- Clinic Survey
- Farmer Survey
- On-Farm Survey
- Aid Provision Survey, Airfield
- Aid Provision Survey, Market
nSight is in the process of getting smartphones with the nSight Aid Survey application to local associates who should be conducting preliminary surveys throughout Africa in the near future.
