Buddyhood

Network of local services

The network makes possible the integration of the neighbourhood by the offer of independent services or other exchanges. With a system based on sms messaging by cel phone the user may solicit a service or as if someone has something to lend him, for example. The SMS is sent to 5 persons on a radius of 1km for people who are listed on that category on the website so they can contact the person interested. On the website there is a database that allows the users to avaliate the other users so that there is built a network of trust and credibility. The point is to strengthen the local economy e higher up the integration of the neighbourhood providing meetings between the residents of a neighbourhood, street, building, or other. There is always a buddy willing to offer what you need.
