Design and Implementation of a Web Based System for Orphanage Management
Majority of Orphanages and State Governments in Nigeria have been using paper logs and manual entries for tracking orphanage records. These methods make it difficult to efficiently manage orphan data and to inform decisions at different levels. This study is in two folds. We analyzed and examined the public perception of having a web based information system for orphanage management and also designed and implemented a web based system for management of orphanages. The system we developed keeps track of orphanages, the orphans, the helps received by the orphanages and members of the public who rendered thesehelps. The study also explored the role of orphanages and government towards orphan care in Edo State of Nigeria, identified the problems in the orphanages and suggested ICT measures that would improve the role of orphanages in orphan care.
