This is the very first resqhome post! We will be constructing this site over the coming months. The purpose of this site will be to provide a central repository of information on events and strifes going on in the world right now. Mostly resqhome will focus on things where you can make a difference. If there’s a vaccine shortage in Kenya and you wished you could do something to help, resqhome will provide a way for that to happen.
First resqhome will begin with knowledge. What is going on in the world and where is it happening. We will focus on aggregating the information and delivering it to you so you don’t need to spend the effort doing so. After that is set up, we will deliver a platform for you to send donations to assist wherever you want. Resqhome will be very security conscientious with every decision we make. You’ll notice the resqhome site is built with https everywhere for the extra layer of security. Donations, when we get to that point, will be stored in the highest form of encrytion available with many layers of security on top.
A primary foundation of this whole venture will be public accountability and transparency. When you donate, where exactly does your money go? Who handles it? How much reaches its intended destination? As sad as it is, that last question is a valid one. There’s no shortage of stories that show misspending of donations by companies that should be able to be trusted. That is another reason for the genesis of resqhome and the transparency that will be built into it.
Resqhome want’s to welcome itself to the internet! We look forward to providing you with a new type of donation platform and to interacting with you all. Keep an eye on this space!
