Wefarm would like a report highlighting a range of impact assessment methodologies with a cost/benefit analysis. The volunteer will need to know about data gathering methods, policy implementation and evaluation, and an understanding of social research techniques would also be beneficial.
Time commitment: 5 days. Work could possibly be done remotely.

Information about the organisation:
Wefarm is a free peer-to-peer service that enables farmers to share information via SMS, without the internet and without having to leave their farm. Farmers can ask questions on farming and receive crowd-sourced answers from other farmers around the world in minutes.
Wefarm seeks to empower farmers to share and access information to solve problems, spread innovation and ultimately improve their livelihood.
Wefarm’s vision is to create a new digital ecosystem for global agriculture, made for farmers, by farmers. To date, the organisation’s’ main activities have been:
1) Development of the technology (including machine learning algorithms)
2) Developing a playbook of engagement strategies to register new users and launch Wefarm in new countries
3) Developing partnerships with NGO’s, companies and governments
