Talawa Mobile App Redesign 2021

See the new look of our Talawa mobile app!

​Talawa was created to help community based organizations collaborate with their membership. These organizations would include religious groups, non-profit charities, social groups and in limited cases, businesses. ​

Though software applications exist for these types of organizations they assume their memberships are fully literate and have access to email. We wanted to create a system that would work for countries with similar technology and education challenges as Jamaica. ​

Talawa has three main components. A mobile application with social media features, a web based portal to be used by the organization’s administrative team, and finally an API providing access to data and features. ​​

The Palisadoes Foundation wants to eventually host Talawa as a cloud service to help finance its education outreach. ​

Talawa’s main features for 2021 include: ​

  • User news feed
  • Event calendars with lightweight project management
  • Group chats
  • Member notifications
  • Donation acceptance
  • Service provider level multi-organization capability
  • Plugin support for administration services such as billing
