Date:7/16/2013

Bilbao, Spain (PRWEB) July 16, 2013

Mobilize your solidarity, FlipOver.org today announced a strategic agreement (MoU) with Karang Taruna, the largest non-profit youth organization in Indonesia to develop a web platform that will connect local neighborhood entrepreneurs to the global crowdsourcing community. The company also recently launched the world’s first social GPS network to identify social challenges on a global scale.

Through its agreement with Karang Taruna, FlipOver.org takes the first major step in expanding its crowdsourcing platform to Southeast Asia. FlipOver.org’s vision is to flip social challenges over to individuals and empower change by building a global network of social entrepreneurs that use crowdsourcing to co-design solutions and change what matters.

“We are at a point in time where technology and mobility are transforming the way individuals can participate in solidarity efforts like never before. Proliferation of technology has made it possible to leverage mobility, not only for business, but to create a profound economic and social impact where it is needed most. We chose Indonesia because it is a truly connected society. Through our partnership with Karang Taruna, FlipOver users will have access to millions of neighborhood volunteers driving local projects, and in turn, these projects can connect to an extensive global support network, just imagine what is possible,” said social entrepreneur Jorge García del Arco, founder, FlipOver.org.

Started in Jakarta in 1960, Karang Taruna is one of the world’s largest voluntary neighborhood youth organizations, with over 10 million active members. Karang Taruna is established in both urban and rural areas spanning across 75,000 small towns, 5,000 districts, 500 cities and 33 provinces. In Indonesia there are over 250 million inhabitants, with more than half the population under 30 years old. Indonesia has the world’s fourth largest population on Facebook, with 64 million active users and 109 percent mobile penetration. Jakarta is also the world’s most active city on Twitter.

“Karang Taruna is a network of youth organizations in villages that empowers kids and adults through activities from playing sports, learning financial skills and creating artwork – our organization teaches important skills from leadership and community values, to accepting diversity. FlipOver is leading the way to improve communities like ours in real, substantive ways,” said Taufan Eko Nugroho Rotorasiko, chairman of Karang Taruna.

A GPS for Social Impact: Identify Needs, Design Solutions, Change What Matters

Launched only six months ago in Bilbao, Spain, FlipOver.org has developed the world’s first Social GPS. Social GPS will serve to identify community issues including the need to support healthcare, social welfare, education, the environment, animal protection and development. Using its online website anyone in the world can report a need for change. Reports are verified through news sources and loaded to the Social GPS database where information is tagged, categorized and measured using advanced semantics. FlipOver.org seeks to generate the most comprehensive online database of social needs, in order to create greater awareness about the world’s biggest challenges.
