Over the last few weeks of interactions with various people doing some amazing work in their domains, have seen the struggles they have undergone to create platforms to manage their projects, accounting, volunteering, fundraising/crowdfunding etc.
This is a major problem that ERPNext/Frappe + FOSS United have decided to solve for anyone who is an NGO or creating software for public goods and services. ERPNext/Frappe is of course free to download and install - there’s also a super cheap hosted version of the same to get started quickly (and some funding available for making that free on a case by case basis). If you have tech help in house or via volunteers, there’s also help available to train them, or if you have a good case for it, some time set aside for actually doing implementations for your needs.
So seriously, NGOs, please stop wasting your time and energy on creating software - leave it to a solid platform and the serious pros - your need will also help create something that’s available to a lot of others with similar needs.
@knadh please pitch in.
