Technology: Missions will create websites and mobile apps for Android and iOS operating systems that facilitate “online marketplace”-type search and communications functionality analogous to Pinterest, Indeed for careers, Kayak for flights, Airbnb for housing or LinkedIn for professional networking.
Phase I: Missions will proactively gather data on all missionaries and missions willing to share information with us to obtain additional financial and non-financial support and seamlessly communicate with existing and potential supporters, fellow missionaries and subject matter experts who can assist a missionary with a relevant solution to address a specific need.
Once website and mobile apps have been created and initial data on missions and missionaries has been aggregated, Missions will promote the website and provide 24/7 support of live “mission helpers” to assist missionaries and missions obtain additional resources and address needs that better lives.
