義心良用 AMC platform
Web Site: http://www.yxly.hk
Currently, there are more than 1.2 million registered volunteers and at least 2,100 volunteer communities in Hong Kong. Such a large number of volunteers can promote all kinds of volunteer work.
However, we also find that there is a so-called volunteering mismatch, which means that some of the aid-needed by different groups can hardly get sufficient or suitable help. There is also a lack of information exchange among volunteer teams themselves. So we propose an online communication platform in order to solve these problems and improve the efficiency of volunteering.
The platform aims to bridge the gap between volunteer groups or individuals and aid-needed communities through the following procedure:
a)Aid-needed groups post their needs and details on the timetable.
b)Registered volunteer groups apply for providing these services on the platform. Both the service requirement and their capability of satisfying such needs should be taken into consideration.
c)Aid-needed sides match and select the ideal applicant. Once the application is approved by the aid-need side, the online status will change and the corresponding item on the timetable will be blocked.
The platform also serves as an online community for volunteer organizations to exchange work experience and share their meaningful moments.
Through all the information matching and activity promotions, we aim to:
- Attract at least 500 volunteer communities and 100 organizations, which are in need of help eg welfare houses, nursing homes, orphanages.
- Provide comprehensive information and successfully match volunteer communities and aid-needed groups.
