IIM-K students launch ‘Make Our Kerala’ app which aims to help solve the state’s social issues

Quodsi everti ancillae vim qui lorem persius petentium IIM-K students launch ‘Make Our Kerala’ app which aims to help solve the state’s social issues

NEW DELHI, APRIL 25 (ENA) Students from the Indian Institute of Management-Kozhikode have developed an app that aims to help solve the state’s social issues.

The android app called ‘Make Our Kerala’, permits users to create posts to report on numerous issues and tag the location and upload images about the cause in order to report a particular problem.

Assistant Professor Sidhartha S. Padhi, who directed the students in the project, said, “Through this app, we hope to achieve a strong platform where people come together for common goals that they have pledged to support. Our vision is to empower the people with right data and tools to ensure accountability.”

For example, if someone wants to start a campaign to plant a substantive number of saplings, then they just have to upload details about it and tag the location. Other users who are browsing through the app can then offer to pledge their support and take it forward accordingly. Additionally, users can also post and view community updates about their locality through the app and they can also post comments.

The work of five students pursuing the Executive Post Graduate Programme (EPGP), personally identified various challenges it sought to address through this platform. At present, there is no added information on whether an iOS version will be launched as well.
