ICT Brigade: CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
ICT Brigade is a disaster response initiative led by the Computer Professionals’ Union together with various ICT organizations, professionals, and advocates. Under this initiative we are planning to spearhead several projects which would greatly aid disaster-hit communities, which are:
1. Disaster Relief Ops Web Portal
This web app project is aimed at helping civil society, private groups, and individuals as well as local government units in tracking and monitoring relief operations.
2. Mobile Charging Stations and Internet Hotspot
Under this project, CPU and its volunteers would be able to provide power for mobile devices in disaster-hit communities. A portable modem for basic internet access will also be included, giving individuals in said communities means to contact their loved ones and obtain important information in times of disasters if the situation permits.
To bring these efforts into fruition, we will need the help of volunteers to join us in building the web portal and the mobile charging stations.
Rest assured that your personal information will only be used for the purposes of communication for this initiative.
Thank you so much for your support!
