There is an acute need for those in marginalized communities to be connected with services and service providers in order to lift those most at risk and help reconnect people with community and purpose.
What it does
SoPact is a decentralized platform that connects donors with doers by leveraging the celo blockchain and existing networks of service providers including physicians, social workers, and a range of other necessary service providers. SoPact accelerates decentralized access to a comprehensive range of services for people who are homeless or at risk, including those suffering from a substance use disorder.
These include: 1.) Access to safe housing 2.) Primary care physician access 3.) Access to psychiatry and therapy 4.) Transportation to service provider locations

How we built it
SoPact is built using the react native app, solidity and the celo blockchain. Expo is used to test the react native app. We'll be using the celo stablecoins later on.
Challenges we ran into
Hashing out the business plan and features breakdown. Determining which features to include, which to build out, and how best to allocate our time in order to deliver by the deadline.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud to have learned a significant amount about celo. Getting a firm grasp on how to tokenize a business model. We are exceedingly proud that we are working on building out a mobile app.
What we learned
We learned that using react natie, celo, ethereum virtual machine, and solidity can be used in conjunction to build a platform in a very short amount of time.
What's next for SoPact Social Impact Platform
We plan to continue development of the mobile app and building out the rest of the features. We plan to leverage the contacts we made here at the Hackathon to continue building out the smart contract and build a web app.
