For a long time I have been wondering how do we give back to the community, how do we help the community to better their circumstances through sustainable methods. There is a need to connect the less fortunate within our communities to earning opportunities. This is more visible during unprecedented times such as now where the less fortunate seek earning opportunities. The truth be told is that if you are living without the basic necessities such as power and sewage then how will you afford to own a laptop, subscribe to freelancer sites, subscribe to job portals, and most importantly stay online to monitor opportunities.
I am seeking funding to start up an organization that will have field operators equipped with laptops and connectivity that will go out to the less fortunate communities and assist in creating a digital footprint that will connect the community members with opportunities. The next step would be to monitor these profiles and assist in responding to such opportunities, therefore becoming the quick connection, communication, and support centre for community members.
There is a need to develop 1) an online platform that connects job opportunities with these community members with instant meeting capabilities and direct contact with community members. Instant access to resumes and an instant resume builder reducing the cost to community members for printing/resume services etc. which they cant afford. 2) an online platform that connects freelancers in all fields to employers with a trustworthy transactional system that ensures projects get completed and payments being made on time. These platforms will be developed in South Africa for South African community members.
Please support this project as this could make a difference in so many underprivileged community members' lives.
Equipment and human resources is needed to kick start this project.
