Abstract

Background

This work proposes the development of a donation application to tackle the lack of awareness regarding local NGOs, orphanages, shelter homes, and hospitals in need of donations. The aim is to bridge the gap between donors and recipients by creating a centralized platform that facilitates communication and streamlines the donation process.

Objectives

The primary objective of the application is to connect donors with recipients efficiently and effectively. Specific features include location-based search, push notifications for urgent donation needs, user profiles to track donation history and preferences, and information on the impact of donations and the organizations involved.

Methodology

The development process involves designing and implementing various features to ensure user-friendly navigation and seamless interaction. Incorporating location-based services, push notification systems, and robust user profile management are key aspects of the methodology.

Results

To test the effectiveness of DONAPP, we conduct simple, informal user surveys that are provided to various stakeholders. These surveys are designed to assess the app in both an objective and subjective manner. The survey results show that the proposed donation application has the potential to significantly increase donation rates and save lives by connecting donors with recipients. Enhanced transparency and trust-building mechanisms, such as providing information on donation impact and participating organizations, contribute to the effectiveness of the application.

Conclusion

In conclusion, the development of this donation application addresses the critical issue of lack of awareness and inefficiency in the donation process. By leveraging technology to connect donors with recipients, the application aims to foster a culture of giving and contributing to positive social impact.
