Talawa helps community based organizations collaborate with their membership.

Community Based Organizations

What do we mean by community based organizations? These are groups of people participating in a common social cause for the benefit of their local communities mostly through volunteers. These include:

  1. religious groups;
  2. non-profit charities;
  3. social groups;
  4. and in limited cases, businesses.

If your organization is making a meaningful difference to your community then Talawa could be for you.

Talawa Features

Talawa has three main components.
