Since thinking about starting my social impact patronage, I thought I can put together some data about the stuff I had done and the numbers behind each of my 11 tech for good projects.
[Data analytics from start of app till present ~1 Mar to 29 Oct 2020:]
Tools for COVID19
Tools, resources and support for small-medium businesses to tide through COVID-19.
Total users = 784
Sessions = 1.09k
Page views = 1.52k
Collaborated with my migrant worker NGO, COVID Migrant Worker Support Coalition, to create this community requests and offers board to grant wishes to migrant workers.
Total requests and offers = 1800+
Total requests matched = 700+
Collaborated with a bunch of volunteer designers, illustrators and translators. We made translated visuals to better communicate medical instructions between healthcare professionals and migrant workers.
Total users = 4.22k
Sessions = 5.95k
Page views = 7.58k
A community offers and requests board to connect hawkers and small F&B operators with delivery drivers, since many F&B were affected by COVID and had to transit to delivery business model.
Total users = 9.71k
Sessions = 12.7k
Page views = 18.8k
A chatbot and directory to help non-profits and charities discover new grants that they never knew existed, in order to tide them through COVID-induced financial difficulty. I recently got funded by The Majurity Trust for creating a version 2 of the Grant Hunt chatbot.
Total users = 670
Sessions = 933
Page views = 1.1k
Total chatbot users = 141
SG Long-term Care Costs Calculator
Made this in collaboration with members from Better.sg, a tech for good volunteer collective. This calculator helps people better estimate the costs of caring for a loved one for the long term. Information like this isn't always readily available.
Sweet Jam Sites COVID19 initiative
Sweet Jam Sites is a commercial web design service that I run, but I wanted to give back, so started this thing where I made free websites for people driving COVID-related causes. The offer also extended to building portfolio websites for creative professionals who were affected by COVID. Made 6 websites to launch so far:
covidsgsurvey.netlify.app - a NGO that does analysis of COVID-related behaviours
irr-c19-mwhelp.netlify.app - a NGO helping migrant workers in Singapore
moppyart.netlify.app - helped an illustrator build her portfolio site
callhome.sg (1 landing page, 2 documentation sites) - my proudest effort for this initiative. Call Home is a 3G-to-landline calling app that allows migrant workers to call home to their loved ones for free.
Public Design Vault
This was done way before COVID. A directory of 500+ tools, resources and links for social impact design. I used to have a suite of sites under the Public Design theme - a job board (Public Design Jobs), a forum (Public Design Forum), but had to put them on hiatus due to cost of maintaining and low usage. Maybe one day I will revive them when new cheaper tools emerge, or I get better at coding to run my own servers for them.
