Aseel is respond­ing to urgent human­i­tar­i­an cri­sis using it’s Do Good plat­form. The plat­form cham­pi­ons what’s called Decen­tral­ized Aid, the abil­i­ty to deploy aid using local mar­kets and resources. It works like ubereats for aid deliv­ery and and thus helps to com­bat the caus­es of flight.


The Aseel App has two major func­tions: do good and buy good. Do Good com­pris­es of two impor­tant func­tions, main­ly the Aseel Omid (Hope) ID Cards that is an iden­ti­fi­ca­tion tool (that helps to track peo­ple in case of in the event of nat­ur­al dis­as­ters or war)  and the Ata­lan (Heroes) Net­work that  enables local youth to deliv­er aid using the Ata­lan app. The Aseel Do Good plat­form till date has sup­port­ed over half a mil­lion peo­ple in the Afghanistan cri­sis and has also been deployed to respond to the earth­quake in Turkey.  The sec­ond approach is “buy good”, mean­ing that peo­ple can buy local­ly made crafts & so on direct­ly through our plat­form.
