Explain your project in details:
The objective of the project is to help patients and people who need blood to get compatible blood donors easily and fast and therefore ultimately save lives. Other objectives include. a) Creating awareness of the importance of donating blood. b) Improving blood quantities in our blood banks by encouraging people to be regular blood donors
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
The project will assist to greatly save a lot of lives. These people will engage in more development oriented activities and therefore lead to sustainable development. Having enough blood in our blood banks will also ensure patients are attended to especially during emergencies
Sustainability and future plans
We hope to form a country database of blood donors. To achieve this we need a media partner who can assist us to do a media campaign to encourage people to register on the system. We are also in the process of completing an android application for the system. We are also planning to have the system available on USSD platform so that it can be able to assist those people in rural Kenya who don't have access to internet.
