Case Study: Realizing Mobility's Global Vision

World Vision has more than 32,000 humanitarian aid and development workers delivering support to poor urban, rural, and remote communities around the world, but could not afford to mobilize many of them with computing resources – until it discovered the rugged, mobile Intel-powered classmate PC.

Challenges
• Support remote workers. In rural and remote Thailand, data communications are patchy, and IT support is non-existent. This meant World Vision staff had to drive hours from the communities they served, back to their office, just to lodge status reports electronically.
• Reduce expenses. Like any aid and development agency, World Vision’s funding is tight and carefully scrutinized. Large-scale introduction of computers is difficult to cost-justify without clear ROI figures.

Solution
• Mobilize staff. Providing remote workers with an Intel-powered classmate PC lets them file status reports on sponsored children, complete with photographs, while they are still at the remote village.
• Cut costs. Intel-powered classmate PCs' low cost makes them easy to justify. Enabling field data entry has reduced the number of trips made to rural communities – saving hundreds of dollars per trip to remote communities and hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.

Assessing the Situation

Founded in 1950, World Vision is a Christian relief, development, and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families, and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. Drawing on more than USD 2.4 billion in annual funds raised, its 32,000 aid workers deliver sustainable community area development programs (ADPs) that support children's well-being and foster community growth in 97 countries.
