Celebrating the 2nd birthday of Helpific in Tallinn

Zsolt Bugarszki

Yesterday we celebrated the 2nd birthday of Helpific Platform. Participating on "Enable" Hackathon in 2014 November in Tallinn was a great experience for me. Originally I registered to the event only because I wanted to see how it works. On behalf of Tallinn University, I wanted to check how I can improve my courses with new methods.

But being there, the entire atmosphere, the great ideas and lot of enthusiastic people from very different fields pulled me in and I joined the idea of Keiu Roosimägi to establish a platform where vulnerable people can find help in their neighbourhood. Over the last two years, Helpific made a great progress in Estonia and nowadays we started to go international having our local team in Finland, Hungary, UK, Germany and Ukraine.

Although we didn't manage to find investors who would give as a speedy kickoff, we started to build the platform step by step based on voluntary contribution of our team members. Today we have more than 2000 registered members, 80% of them from Estonia and our platform connected people more than 300 times in different local communities. I am really proud to be part of this project!
