Explain your project idea (2,000 characters)

Imagine you are moved to a new city and you need electrician to fix something in your house ,the question is how you can find him if you don`t know anything about your new city ? you should ask your neighbors or use a traditional way to find any electrician whatever his qualifications ! the result is always un-satisfaction , in the same time there are many qualified electricians looking for an opportunity to provide their services . Our City is a new established city and all citizens are a new comers ,they are missing information to reach the right services from the right person at the right time , there are high numbers of new graduated youth looking for jobs , a high number of students are looking for summer training , a lot of people looking for an opportunity to be a volunteer in charity , a many qualified persons are specialized in a different fields like teachers ,engineers , doctors ,technicians ,baby sitters ,home cleaners and many others are looking for the opportunity to introduce themselves to townspeople. In the same time there are many offices , small companies, factories , supermarkets , restaurants ,cafés , clothes shop and others , looking for the opportunity to introduce their services for citizens. On another hands there are a lot of citizens , offices and factories are looking for these services but they are missing advanced method to reach each other and get enough information about the qualification of the services provider and the estimated fees .We offer an idea of creating a single Mobile application for providing on-line connection services between the service provider and the service seeker and this will be created in the form of Mobile application. By deployment the idea on the town the whole services are consolidated on the mobile application, we can select ,register and order the suitable service for you with acceptable fees ; also you can donate to indigent people any time you decided.
