Are we designing the systems to protect our beneficiaries' personal data with the utmost care? Are we designing a cost effective solution, bearing in mind that each dollar has been donated to us and we are accountable for how we spend the donations? Are we making sure that the precious data we collect from the field becomes a source of understanding and better decisions?
