Galli Galli Taxi and Takeoff
Information is undoubtedly an important facet to every society, because our daily lives are influenced and made easier by the knowledge we have. However this is not the case in Nepal, where an uninformative culture hinders the general quality of everyday life. Galli Galli is essentially seeking to change this dynamic through a combination of technological solutions and people networks.
Holding a strong belief in a hybrid of technology, research and human networks, Galli Galli seeks to improve information by building an online Nepal in two ways. First, by solving the problem of the lack of maps for Kathmadu’s extensive transportation network as well as information on corresponding transport fare prices. This will be executed through the use of an interactive web based application that delivers crowd sourced data from interactive maps.
Also, alongside the development of public transport, Galli Galli is working towards simplifying and improving the attainment of government services, such as the renewal of drivers’ licenses. Important services that lack ease and procedural information will be vastly improved by the project.
Reaching the campaign tipping point goal of $7,424 will enable start up costs, salaries, and stipends to be paid. The total funding goal of $16,423, will support operations for 4 months by being honed into building and development of Monsoon Collective, the interactive transportation webapp. It will also go into the long term business planning and the legal incorporation of Galli Galli Taxi and Take Off.
Please help Galli Galli improve the basic quality of Nepal’s informative system by getting involved in this campaign in any way that you can. With already over $6,000 raised to date, Galli Galli has 6 more days to reach its tipping point and beyond.
I am a 23-year-old Londoner currently in law school. I have a BA in Politics and International Relations and an LLB in law. I have worked as a Student Facilitator for the British Red Cross, taught at local schools in Berkshire and have done a lot of pro bono legal research for Amnesty International and the Arizona Capital Trials Project. When I finish law school, I hope to start saving the world by working in developmental research and perhaps move to Paris to eat macaroons, dabble in photography and write stories. I’m also an avid reader, white wine drinker and world traveler.
