SD06-iShare Support Donation Platform

iShare Support Donation Platform – is a platform with Microsoft Cloud Cognitive Services for the donation of old PC equipment and giving support to the poor students at scale like Uber and AirBnB. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, education has to go 100% online suddenly. The disadvantaged students are suffering seriously! They do not have a PC, notebook, and even internet connection! As a result, poor children cannot learn from home and it widens the gap between the rich and the poor students. Currently, there are many charities launch old PC donation campaigns, and the traditional way is generally in 3 steps: collect an old PC, store it and give it to a student. It is not effective at all and not scalable! Hence, the best way is to adopt the idea of the sharing economy and decentralize the donation process like our project “iShare Support Donation Platform”, to make use of Microsoft Azure Cloud services to match donors, students and volunteers quickly with AI.
