• Description
What is the immediate issue or problem?

We need to identify a free platform for NGOs to add and map their physical resources and knowledge expertise, that can be shared with other NGOs in an area. This platform would allow NGOs from across the spectrum in localised areas to collaborate and work together on solving challenges not just in education, but across a wide range of issues.

The solution must be accessible via mobile phone and not consume a lot of data.

We don’t have the time or resources to build the platform and maintain it constantly, so whatever solution is proposed must be very robust and low maintenance. The solution should also require very little training to use.

The data needs to be searchable and the basic data we think should be captured is as follows:
NGO Name
Location: Geo location tag
Resource Type: Text Input
Resource Availability: Text Input
Other Information: Text Input

How long have we got to solve it?

We have two months to solve this issue.

What issues stand in the way of solving this problem?

The biggest logistical hurdle is access to connectivity and data, we really need this solution to be something that works on low speed mobile connections and does not use a lot of data.

What kind of assets do you think we could use to solve the problem?

Our NGO can offer basic training to other NGO’s, and support to help people use the platform.

What has been tried and hasn’t worked or hasn’t completely solved the problem?

Currently we have some records, and word of mouth, but it doesn’t really help us keep track of real-time resources available.
