The idea behind this software was created to run on smartphones, is to enable the inhabitants of these camps can exchange “objects, goods and services without money involved,” creating – precisely – a trade.

The site of the university, in its official statement, slogan statements of their own students in ensuring that the purpose of this application focuses on “making every person feel useful camp and appreciated, since the cost of each object is determined by themselves. For example, a plate can be exchanged for a service such as mowing the grass in the garden. “

The project just caused a huge rejection in due to the significant barrier to entry – as users – would be forgetting these students in their project, which was rewarded and promoted for their house of studies: In the camps, given its composition and quantity of social deprivation, there are many other priorities before having a smartphone.
