Problem: Decreasing of Worldwide Giving Index - http://bit.ly/2khneoC Bulgaria is at one of the last places–19% in 2017, 21% in 2016, 23% in 2015 The decrease is worldwide. We would like to reverse this declining trend.
#1. Lack of transparency:
1. People are not willing to donate because they are not sure if their money will be spent correctly;
2. CSR is not visible to the large audience. It is visible only in some reports, maybe in some pictures on Facebook which are lost among the others;
3. NGOs are having websites or pages on Facebook where for instance for BG on average they have only 5000 followers who are receiving regular information from the social media for the causes that a particular NGO is supporting.
#2: Fragmented or just missing information leads to less involvement. Human beings' true nature is to be good. In our dynamic world (full of information) become harder and harder to show this goodness in practice. Because people don’t know how don’t know where.
Our solution is a specialized social network Volontime - which is one stop shop for people and organization who want to do good deeds.
