We have decided to go in a different direction with this project. We will partner with an established app and do a cost-sharing to recapture the development costs.
The app which has been developed will still have the same elements of the original Charity tree app.
The ultimate goal of the project is to be able to have the children experience in how to make the NPO sustainable. We will now start to focus their attention on different aspects of the app, i.e. Marketing etc
Ultimately it is a good exercise in showing how the apps can be embraced to appeal to the larger global audience.
Our partners have been making progress on the development for this app in Europe but we are still looking for funding to contribute to the development of the app in order to make it compatable with the Japanese market.
By having this app, we can not only involve the children with programming and development but we can also roll out a tech centric way for the NPO to be sustainable.
Apps like this will allow us to also keep in touch with our donor base on a more regular basis as well as update them on how the points they have donated have been utilized.
