Research and Resources

A. Needs mapping – how we qualify? Needs based / means tested.

To start we will narrow our focus to 3 functions:

Food

Clothes

Problem of safety of women and children, in a neighbourhood, by anyone in distress /abused calling for help via the SOS tag of our App. Self help groups can be formed in a neighbourhood who can respond immediately to someone needing help.

B. Resource mapping – households in a community /residents welfare / organisations. Restaurants and Grocery stores

C. Logistics /delivery services.

Mumbai dhabawallas per month or random location. Who pays for it?

Links to other platforms for good. What services and which area do we want to cover?
