Projects

 

  1. ManageMyNGO (MMN)
    You will work on an application we’re building in NGO sector. It aims to connect NGOs and Corporate to build their CSR relations with the supervision of the govt. This platform will allow NGOs to focus on their root cause activities so that their work can have a larger impact. This digital product will free them from the extraneous efforts they put in getting funds from the corporate. You will be required to use your skills and expertise to build a robust platform that solves real problems for the intended users. Your work will be innovative so that you help the entire team achieve more than what each one alone can. We’re developing the pilot version in partnership with Haryana Government and it will be used by 100 NGOs initially.
