Dear Kind Donors,

                                 Open Application for Job Search Software Upgrade Funding, Donations and Donations to Charity in Nigeria, West Africa.

We a team of 3 Software developers at Tochy Computer Services BN 3396215 would like to make an open fundraising application for $100,000 in likes of money, time and skill to upgrade a job search mobile application by migrating the application to the flutter framework and also reproduce a windows and iOS port of the application under the name 5 List job search which was previously published to the Google play store on 9th May 2022.

We were mainly inspired to start this application due to lack of available jobs for present day youths  both graduates and undergraduates in Nigeria, which has led a lot of people to engage in many social vices that is slowly eating up the nation Nigeria at this present day.

With all these problems at hand our aim at the time of publishing 5 List job search software application are:

  • To create more employment opportunities for struggling youths, graduates in Nigeria and most parts of Africa.
  • Boost the employment rate of educated and uneducated youths in many areas.
  • Ease the process of job application
  • Eradicate employment fraud which is becoming prevalent.

The software application 5 List Job search is a fork of Nokri job board as published on 9th May 2022 under General Public licensing. We have recorded little success with the application before it had to be shut down and un-published (hidden but not deleted) from the Google play store, reasons for this being that the original app and backend script was not suitable for what we needed it for at the time and lacked a lot of features that could help employers and job seekers connect effectively. This led to everything being cumbersome which in turn drastically reduced the chances of job seekers gaining employment and also had employer’s quickly loose interest in the software due to its cumbersome nature. Other issues with the original application software are:

  • No custom admin tree dashboard, as it was using the word press Content Management System for a lot of backend operations thereby making it an uphill task to customize most admin/backend features.  
  • Bugs related to uploading resumes.
  • Lack of actual messaging and communication features.
  • Lack of a good UI and UX.
  • Lack of actual messaging features, video call. There is a video call API on the backend but that requires further customization.
  • Employer, staff of employers and candidate dashboard is a lot less simplified and difficult to understand.
  • The admin dashboard is word press based with almost no custom security settings, authentication and requires coding and installing custom plugins to ensure some security on the admin side of the CMS.
  • Lacked good moderation features that would allow admins work independently and communicate effectively which is difficult to achieve using word press.
  • Further Customization in codebase requires an annual subscription to PHP storm IDE

Migrating the application from its PHP, Java codebase to flutter will enable us to:

  • Have a more simplified and better looking UI and UX.
  • Have a better way of tailoring resumes and a better way for candidates to showcase their experience in skilled areas.
  • Have a custom messaging service as a separate app to enable easy cross platform messaging.
  • Have a video call service on the messenger side of the application to enable employer and employee to schedule interviews over the internet without requiring third-party software or service.
  • Have a more customized backend service.
  • Have more API options with LinkedIn, indeed, upwork, monster jobs, Google, and Facebook.
  • Enable straightforward cross-platform compatibility across target devices.
  • Have a better administration panel for different levels of admins to use and assign roles.
  • Have a customized API that different services can connect to and leverage.
  • Have a better way of exporting and vetting user data.
  • Run on better server side hardware and maximize performance.
  • Have a more up-to-date job search software.
  • Boost revenue funders both public and private.
  • Boost public interest.

We are also requesting money to purchase supplies i.e. food, clothes to donate to the less privileged of which pictures and videos of our donation rounds plus accurate account of how money was spent purchasing these supplies will be posted and documented on this page and website as a whole. The bank details for receiving the funds are; Bank: Access Bank, Bank Account Name: Eze-Odikwa Tochukwu Jed, Account number: 0798583741, Bank SWIFT CODE: ABNGNGLAXXX, Country: Nigeria. No amount is too small and any received will be well appreciated and put to proper use.

We are not requesting with empty hands of course, we have purchased some equipment and accomplished some milestones so far so good:

  • Purchased a 2.5 kva generator set to combat power supply this equipment is still new and hasn’t been used until I get enough funds to secure an office space.
  • Purchased a 600watt solar power set to combat erratic supply during the day.
  • Purchased 2 office chair set.
  • Purchased 2 office table set.
  • Opened over 4 developer accounts which includes Google play store for the android part of the application.
  • Opened a Microsoft developer account and passed vetting status.
  • Purchased an extra laptop computer for any extra hands we might hire locally during the funding process. The extra laptop has specs of 8 GB ram, core i5 and 1tb HDD. It is ready with android studio, visual studio and visual studio code IDE installed.
  • Gave NGN 8000 to the less privilege through the means of my church the seventh day Adventist church Ehimiri housing estate Umuahia, Abia state, Nigeria.
  • Gave NGN 30,000 to Gold Alozie Amarachi Following the death of her father which happened months ago as part of funding for the bereaved.
