About Us


Project: Mapping Application

The Amazon Conservation Team (ACT) is partnering with indigenous communities to create maps of their territories, a process involving the collection of thousands of data points related to indigenous sacred sites, cultural land use, traditional medicine, flora, fauna, and environmental and social pressures. This data is used to create territorial management plans that help indigenous communities make informed decisions on the fate of their territories.

ACT is developing an application for mobile devices that will improve the collection of geospatial data in rural and forest areas of developing countries. The application interface is being designed to maximize accessibility for semi-literate and illiterate communities by using graphical representations, audiovisual content, and indigenous languages. The application will connect to an online portal that seamlessly syncs and aggregates data for use in a browser-based mapping platform, such as Google Maps.

Time Estimation: 15 – 40 Hours


Recruiting for the Following Skills:

  • Database: Google App Engine, CartoDB, PostGIS, PostgreSQL or MySQL
  • UI: HTML5, Bootstrap, JQuery or other JS libraries Programming
  • Languages: Python (REST API), PHP, JavaScript, Ruby

Looking for a Team of: 4 – 8 Volunteers

About Us


Project: Citizen Scientists Data Visualization Application

Our goal is to come out of the project with the technical specifications and plans needed to build out our Citizen Scientist Sub-Site. This project will encompass creating a visual database tool where users can see and share research. SHARE For Cures is hoping to add the ability for our users to participate as Citizen Scientists. A Citizen Scientist is defined as a member of the general public helping with the systematic collection and analysis of data. We want to enable our users to help researchers by generating new hypothesis using the collective data our users have shared. In addition, we hope to have other users vet and vote up or down the hypotheses generated and published in a forum. We would like users to have the ability to select multiple data elements from the users own data and from the collective shared data of other users, and the ability to graph, chart, or plot the data in any way.

The platform includes a patient website, a SDK (Software Development Kit) for application developers to build interfaces with the SHARE platform, as well as native applications that will soon be embedded into well-utilized websites.

Time Estimation: 15 – 40 Hours


Recruiting for the Following Skills:

  • Database: PostgreSQL or MySQL
  • UI: Graphic Design, HTML5, Bootstrap, JQuery or other JS libraries Programming
  • Languages: Python (REST API), PHP, JavaScript, Ruby

About Us


Project: Career Portal

Many people have career skills and recent training, but not the access to the right community to become competitively employed. We aim to fix this by creating a social network to empower those from the SamaSchool network to support one another. This website will be primarily used to provide a means of sustained connection to students and professionals, in both peer to peer and career opportunities.

Time Estimation: 15 – 40 Hours
