OOL app focused in social participation to solve communitary problems (Team OOL)

OOL is the first application in Mexico focused on volunteer work and social development, it aims to encourage people to take over their cities and be the difference needed. OOL is committed to social change through citizen participation, real change is in our hands and this application allows Mexicans to face the cruel reality they live.

Enforced disappearances, drugs, crime, lack of basic rights and services such as water and electricity, corruption and injustice; OOL is based on the theory of "Appropriation of Public Spaces" that allows citizens to improve their quality of life, just being accustomed to the streets and helping in their community.

Mexico has the opportunity to improve, so why we are not doing it? The problem is that the most valuable opportunities to get involved in community issues are volunteer opportunities that are sponsored by non-profit organizations who have no money to promote themselves, therefore, are little known. OOL represents the bridge between non-profit organizations and citizens; with a dynamic interface presenting the user volunteering options, and with a single click, registration is done. This mobile application will revolutionize the way Mexico feels and get others involved in their community.
