It was really great to attend Beta Testing Session of a Mobile App by Code For Pakistan.
I got invitation from Sidra Jalil (Director Operations at Code for Pakistan).
Code For Pakistan
Code For Pakistan is a non-profit building a non-partisan civic innovation ecosystem to improve quality of life across Pakistan.
They believe that digital technology, when used correctly, can both improve governance and open new channels for citizens to more meaningfully engage in the public sphere and have a positive impact on their communities.
Through the creation of open source technology to address civic needs, we aim to transform civic life by increasing civic engagement, encouraging the opening of government data, and supporting innovation in the public domain.
Team at Code for Pakistan has been enthusiastically working on the development of a mobile app aimed at facilitating citizens of Islamabad and improve their quality of life.
The app will facilitate reaching out to several Govt Departments, get services and information in an easy manner and can share their feedback with competent authorities.
The product is now in the testing phase after completion of the design and development phase.
They strongly believe that a citizen servicing app should incorporate community feedback, hence they at Code for Pakistan in collaboration with Islamabad and Chaklala Civic Innovation Labs and WECREATE Center Islamabad invite us all to be part of this feedback collection process.
Opening by Asim Ghaffar, President of Code for Pakistan started with a warm welcome and a very good statement he shared with us.
In Code For Pakistan, we do not talk about problems, we talk about SOLUTIONS.
And that’s the thing that CFP has come up with a real working solution in shape of mobile app and it will help and improve civilian’s life.
I enjoyed the session and good to see many people from different organizations and professional fields were there to test the mobile app.
They all gave their feedback and I am sure the CFP will improve with maximum no. of feedback points.
I wish CFP good luck in their journey.
