  • www.sahana.lk Disaster Management Sahana Software Foundation After any disaster , govenment sets up relief camps and provides aid to the displaced people. Interantional aid is also provided to the country. Aid includes food, water, drugs, clothes and other things. Proper distribution of these things needed to be done. Mismanagement results into not propely utilizing the aids being sent.
  • www.sahana.lk Disaster Management Sahana Software Foundation Software tools used for managing relief work: 1. Spreadsheets. 2. Accounting Softwares 3. Office Tools. Lack of one complete package for disaster relief work management wasn't available. This results into need of a software package that can handle various tasks related to disaster Management. Hence Sahana was developed!
  • www.sahana.lk What is Sahana? Sahana Software Foundation
  • www.sahana.lk Sahana Software Foundation Sahana is web based application package provding solution to post disaster problem regarding various type of information require to manage the disaster relief work.

    Interesting Sahana sub projects
  • Sahana Software Foundation www.sahana.lk Interesting Sahana sub projects Sahanapy This is a reimplementation of the original Sahana-idea to create a powerful RAD framework for Emergency Management Apps, ensuring a solid foundation for future enhancements by a diverse community of development groups. Its based on web2py framework. www.sahanapy.org
  • Sahana Software Foundation www.sahana.lk Interesting Sahana sub projects Why Sahanapy? Sahana is developed in a custom PHP framework which is based on design principles which have since become sub-optimal due to the emergence of new MVC frameworks & highly-interactive Web 2.0 UIs. The current codebase has grown organically since it was originally designed – standards have broken down & the code is becoming harder to maintain. It is currently hard to access data from modules via consistent methods this is required for serious integration e.g. in GIS & Messaging.
  • Sahana Software Foundation www.sahana.lk Interesting Sahana sub projects The current codebase has grown organically since it was originally designed – standards have broken down & the code is becoming harder to maintain. Internationalization i18n To design a software in a way that allows adaption to different languages and regional differences without having to rework the code.
  • Sahana Software Foundation www.sahana.lk Interesting Sahana sub projects Localization L10N To adopt the software to the needs of particular language or region.
  • Sahana Software Foundation www.sahana.lk Interesting Sahana sub projects Sahana User Interface translation Sahana has already been translated in a number of languages which include Chinese, Hindi, Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, Russian, German, Tamil and more.
