The Fandi Mamam non-profit came up with the idea of creating a mobile application that would mediate the provision of material help to people in a difficult life situation. Get inspired by the project that managed to convey effective donor support over the last two years and was created in collaboration with Mapotic.
The Fandi mamam organization stands behind the Fandimat application. It was established to support single mothers and has won a number of awards in recent years. It focuses on interconnecting people and organizations who want to help individuals or non-profit organizations.
The main benefits of cooperation between Fandi Mamam and Mapotic:
In the beginning of 2020, we were contacted by the Fandi Mamam non-profit with its idea of creating a mobile application that would simplify the process of providing direct material support to specific recipients and donors. From the very beginning, it was clear that one of the most important stages of this form of support through gifts and physical items is the logistics and transport of the donated goods to the destinations.
The FandiMat mobile application helps people in material need – families, singles, seniors, the socially disadvantaged and other people who need material help. FandiMat makes it easy to provide this help – whether it is unused items that people have at home or new items.
A smart map operated through a mobile application and website make it easier to connect charities, individuals and other aid providers with recipients of aid. It also includes regularly held and media-attractive food collections, also known as Solidarity Day.
Fandi Mamam originally organized help through a Facebook group with almost 7,000 members. However, having so many people involved required a more efficient solution for displaying members. So Fandi Mamam decided to create a mobile app.
We helped creating a map structure that will allow users to easily find their counterpart using a user-friendly map and specific filters. In addition, we addressed specific project needs, such as user account verification.
Maps act as a means of connecting people who are geographically close to each other. In the optimal case, the donor can then deliver the item directly to the person seeking help.
After registering to the application, each user can create their own profile and describe their current needs. They can change their information at any time or temporarily or permanently hide the profile from the map.
Preset categories of material help and products that people in need often seek, allows donors to filter quickly and easily. If someone wants to donate food or clothes to children, they can find a single mother in the region in seconds thanks to the filters.
For the smooth implementation of the entire donor transaction, it was important to enable mutual contact between the two parties in several ways. Mapotic has implemented this option to enable the contact of users' counterpart in the map using a message button that appears directly in the profile.
For the purpose of monitoring the impact of the organization's activities, statistical tools have been implemented that allow measuring and analyzing the impact and growth of the project.
Already during the first months after the launch (Spring 2020) we registered hundreds of entries on the map, hundreds of people received specific material assistance thanks to FandiMat, there were thousands of donations and many real interpersonal connections.
All activities for profile approval and verification and project management are covered by a robust administration system. The map runs on the project’s own domain with a design adapted to the project brand, a mobile application for Android & iOS has also been programmed.
Another communication channel was created for the operators, partners and sponsors of the project, which significantly expands its fundraising opportunities.
