What barriers have hindered the success of your project to date? How do you plan to overcome these and other challenges as you grow your solution?
Barriers that have hindered the success of this organisation has been resources. Which would allow time and funds to work on organisation and its potential aims. I will overcome this, is if I achieve recognition in this competition, I will use the resources and the stimuli to seek funds from other foundations, and democracy spreading institutions.
The backing and belief in the the NGO is vital. As at the moment many people just dismiss it as Facebook blog page. The right advice and support would provide the energy to make a leap into achieving the set aims. The aims itself are very ambitions and thus not a single simple app will solve the problems of lack of transparency, or democracy disillusionment being at all time low participation.
How do you see the information-technology and media sectors shifting over the next decade? How will your solution adapt to and/or drive that changing environment?
Loads of informations, and work will be moved on to internet and cloud computing. There will be new gate keepers for information. This organisation aims at driving worlds governments, and their civil bureaucracies to adopt internet technologies, for the better access to them for the people. Citizens should get better informed about their community and the world through extra informations and interesting facts. Those in collection of the information, and responsible for public graphic maps. People important in local communities will have a big say!
Failure is not always an option. If your solution fails to gain traction in the next two years, what other applications of the idea could you explore?
Keeping this organisation as a spokes person for eGovernance, observation of development of internet for the benefit of democracy, and human rights. Writing books, documentaries, news article regarding the issue. Helping other states, and governments in adoptions of successful internet technologies, and applications for eGovernance.

Would seek funds from all the possible, right sources. Such as other foundations, democracy spreading institutions, even states

Tell us about your partnerships
What type of team (staff, volunteers, etc.) will ensure that you achieve the growth milestones identified in the Social Impact section?
At the moment there is only me running the NGOs missionm as a Director. In short term this is the plan. Also try to network with other members with similar objectives
I will require programmers for creation of applications, internet forums, official website. Especially if platform and algorithms will be chosen to be designed to provide analysis and information of arising trouble spots.
In long term a fund-raiser might be required, and maybe few assistants/interns.
