Challenges We Overcame: How we made a Donation App

We have overcome the big challenges faced in the charity donation sector with this Charity Donation Mobile App.

  1. In general, fundraising companies accept only Cash or money. Whereas we came up with the way to accept or donate Non- cash items such as articles, books, food supplies etc.
  2. Pinpointing the Receivers location in the app was an unimaginable task. So, what we did is, we have custom integrated the Google Maps API with the Mobile App. This enables the donor to identify the get connect with the needy.
  3. In most of the cases, the donor will never know if the end-user is really benefited. This app ensured the donor with the delivery and acknowledge message from the beneficiary.
