Pakistan one of the most deadly affected countries with COVID'19, having almost have of it's a population living under the poverty line. However, Pakistan is one of the most philanthropist nation as well, in which the Development sector is working with Non-Government Organizations to uplift the poor. Like all the world, Pakistan is also in Lockdown but here already malnutrition people are not even getting basic food items.
What it does
RationGhar is a platform which is linking Non-Government organizations to the needy people. It provides a cross-platform communication between an NGO and a needy person. A person can fill in a form and make request for NGO to review. The NGOs' can view the submission and assign it to themselves. Once assigned, the form will be available in the Assigned List of the NGO. From this list, the NGO can change the status of the form between "In Progress" and "Fulfilled". People can track their form by tracing their CNIC.
How we built it
We built it using React, Firebase, MaterialUI, CSS, HTML.
Challenges we ran into
We learned Firebase from scratch and implemented an idea that initially seemed difficult. In addition to this, we faced internet connectivity issues at some points, which made the collaborative work a bit difficult. However, we tried to come up against all the odds to complete the project.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that RationGhar will someday serve the community for both the people in Pakistan and other countries too. We are proud that we learned Firebase in just 36 hours and will be able to use it in future projects too.
What we learned
We learned a lot of new skills. Some of these include time management, collaborative working and competitive website development. In addition to this, we learned how to come up with a fully functional web app in just 36 hours.
What's next for RationGhar
We will try to launch it in our local community and try to expand it in the country. In addition to this, we intend to make it more feasible for all types of people and improve the UI even further.
