Fakkah Smart Box


Fakkah Organization for Entrepreneurship and Community Partnerships is a non-governmental and non-profit organization. It works on Sustainable Social Contribution, through transferring the fractions (Fakkah) remaining in each bill in hypermarkets, online or mega stores, to small and intermediate projects to help build and develop Egypt and at the same time build comprehensive partnerships with other organizations in many fields. The idea came when the organization noticed how often our receipts have small fractions remaining that we do not usually use, so would not it be better if such fractions were directed towards projects that really need it?! This is how the idea of a Smart Box was conceived, where a basic design is available but your help is needed to build on that design and make it smarter! Check the image above, to have a better idea of the imagined design and read on to know more about the required Smart Box features and functions.
