FFFF - a platform that gels different actors of the civil society into finding, funding and fixing their own problems and having fun doing so. We aspire to be the biggest portal for completed and new social projects awaiting to be delivered.
The underpinning ideas is to make Government bodies come down to the level of citizenry and collaborate in a crowd sourced fashion and at the same time help the civil society to take things in their own hand.
No project is successful without a commercial aspect and collaboration of people, builders, investors, etc.
While the details are still being finalized with my team, we will define 5 key roles/stakeholders in our system.
1- The public
2- Scouts, Curators and Content Editors - (high energy youth can participate in this role. The system will provide tools to collect data and lobby and gather traction on projects)
3- Coordinators (high energy and experienced professionals can participate in this role. They have connections and communication skills to connect problems to their fund sources including CDA, NADRA, etc.)
4- Funders (Individual investors, investment groups and government bodies will mostly come in this role. Coordinators will work closely with scouts to collect and refine data and funders to ensure success).
5- Fixers (these are the independent contractors that actually do the work. Coordinators will lobby with contractors to engage in tenders and other RFQs, help them be successful).
Each role will have levels and as you gain more experience you can unlock more privileges. Of course all of this can be boasted on your public profile, resumé, etc.
We'll restrict this to Islamabad for now.
I envision this as a web application so looking for minimalist graphic designers, front end engineers and coders. I'm not sure about the technology right now but most could settle on MEAN stack or LAMP stack.
Feedback appreciated. The team currently includes Fahim Akhter, Ahmed Ali Nasir and myself.
