The users will be able to see the list of volunteer jobs around Singapore. The website also allows users to be able to click and visit the volunteer jobs website.
How does your hack answer the problem statement? We make volunteering easier to encourage it to become more widespread, by allowing volunteers to easily find volunteering opportunities that they are keen and interested in.
