Task
Background and objectives
Requirements
Our organization is looking for 3 Online Volunteers with experience in mobile application development for our new initiative. During our long time working with unprivileged communities, we have observed, they face a lot of difficulty in accessing the most relevant information they are looking for. Even when they have access to the information, they cannot extract what they are looking for, due to illiteracy and complicated technology. Here they need human support. The mobile application will help them to seek help from other people available online. This application will be available for free. We have developed a concept of how the application will work and we want skilled and experienced Online Volunteers to develop it. The application will be available in multiple languages. After selecting 3 Online Volunteers, we will share our concept with them in an online planning meeting and distribute tasks to execute the project quickly.
