The Aggregator Platform (TAP) is a unique initiative inspired by the #HumansOfOando with a long term goal of eradicating hunger and alleviating poverty in Nigeria, one community at a time, through structured intervention.
Through an interactive map, TAP enables potential donors identify different communities in Lagos State and their exact needs; it goes one step further by making it possible for a donor to select the specific community they want their donations to go to. As aggregator, TAP then disburses resources to the NGOs whilst ensuring through monitoring and evaluation that the resources reach the identified communities.
