Abstract

IkamvaYouth is a non-profit organization in South Africa that would benefit from a streamlined system that expedites registration and optimizes communication for volunteers and learners. IkamvaYouth currently has multiple mediums for registering users, which is hard to track and manage. Our solution is to make a product for volunteers and learners. The learners will be able to identify the nearest branch. The volunteers will be able to identify the nearest branch and register for a position at that branch. The primary considerations for an application in South Africa is that it is practical and usable. The solution provide is based on web technologies to deal with the devices in South Africa, particularly focusing on data usage. The final step of the project entails the deployment of the application by Global Social Benefit Fellowship students who will be implementing the application in South Africa with the organization.
