4Bells: mobilize known volunteers quickly and effectively Presentation Transcript

  • 1. 4Bells Deploy help after a disaster
  • 2. THE PROBLEM
  • 3. After a disaster strikes, communities need to quickly deploy people to do urgent tasks.
  • 4. Coordination in a time of stress can be difficult, time- consuming and is often ineffective.
  • 5. How can we quickly get people with the right skills and preparation to the right places?
  • 6. OUR SOLUTION
  • 7. 4Bells is a mobile solution that allows you to deploy known people to do urgent time- sensitive tasks.
  • 8. This is how 4Bells works: • A user creates a group to do a certain set of tasks. • Trained volunteers receive a code so that they can connect to the group. • The group owner can send out tasks to be claimed by volunteers. • Volunteers see enough detail to be able to claim and then complete the task.
  • 9. You can use 4Bells to create a group or sign up as a volunteer.
  • 10. A volunteer creates a profile and associates themselves with a group.
  • 11. When an task is required, the volunteer receives enough details to be able to claim it.
  • 12. THE IMPACT
  • 13. More quickly complete time- sensitive tasks.
  • 14. Better utilization of trained and skilled volunteers.
  • 15. Improved capacity for neighborhoods to self- organize in times of stress.
