RapidFTR is a mobile app and database system that lets aid workers collect and share information about children in emergency situations, so they can be reunited with their families. That process, called Family Tracing and Reunification (FTR), is currently done on paper. The project initially came out of an ITP class called Design for UNICEF, taught by Clay Shirky. It is now in active development with help from volunteers from ThoughtWorks and the open source community.
