The Good Index
The National database of volunteers during COVID-19
‘TheGoodIndex’ is a realtime database for able-bodied volunteers to connect with those who need help in their area.
In Israel there are many bodies dedicated to helping those in need. There are also many people who are interested in volunteering and lending a helping hand.
Sadly, there is no one place where all the volunteers in the country are listed, making it difficult for people to find help easily and quickly.
We want to enable that speedy help needed - with just the click of a button.
How does it work?
Volunteers go on the website and sign up.
They list the days they are available to help, what they can do, and which areas of Israel they can reach.
Organizations, Municipalities, and Emergency Call Centers:
enter the management system.
They search according to category, area in Israel, and hours.
The system then outputs a list of all the potential volunteers.
In the upcoming version the system will be updated to make the connection between volunteers and those in need easier.
When someone searches for a volunteer, they will be able to send an immediate request through the website to the volunteer who can then respond speedily if they accept or not.
‘The Good Index’
A civic movement connecting those who wish to help
with those who need help.
It will aid many demographics like special needs children, elderly people who live alone, children doing long-distance learning,
