When Findwise got a request to build an engagement network app for the volunteers in the Swedish Red Cross it was obvious to contribute. Therefore, we offered 10 free weeks of consulting work.
“To contribute to society and taking social responsibility is important for Findwise. By working pro bono in a project like this, we add true value with our competence and time. Our work will help the Swedish Red Cross in their daily operations, and ultimately a lot of people in need of help and support” says Jessica Gold Corporate Responsibility Coordinator at Findwise.
With the tool now being built, the Swedish Red Cross can coordinate the needs of the humanitarian efforts by effectively reaching out to over 30 000 volunteers. From the summer of 2017 the volunteers will be invited to join the app to match skills and interests of volunteers to the events with specific requirements needed. This will make response planning virtually self-sustaining. The solution Findwise is building is also a tool for effective monitoring of operations, enabling the Red Cross to gather and analyze data from local activities in a more efficient way.
