A critical common thread that lies at the core of all the women empowerment initiatives is financial independence. Empowerment means giving someone the ability to “control their life and claim their rights”. Financial independence is not only a source of confidence but also gives women the credibility to participate in important matters of decision making, for themselves and their families.
Financial Independence should be the new age Self-Care Initiative for Women Empowerment.
Thus we bring to you WomenGenix, a web application that empowers women to earn money by selling their own authentic self-made products and creative abilities from home & providing reliable services on the go. Our aim is to make women feel independent and self-cared.
What it does
Our web application provides women of all age groups an opportunity to be financially independent by posting about the services which they can provide and products which they are capable of selling. Potential buyers can see these posts and contact these women if they are interested in the said services.
We also have a page from where women can look for work oppotunities and aplly for them in case they are interested.
How we built it
For the opportunities page, we are using Indeed API to get the latest job oppotunities for women.
Challenges we ran into
It was our first time using Sass. It was definitely challenging initially however it turned out great at the end.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that we were able to completely build this project in such a short duration.
What we learned
Firstly, we learnt to work in a team, coordinating different tasks, considering one of us is a first time hackathon participant.
What's next for WomenGenix
We would like to add more feature to the website in the coming future.
