Sahana Objectives

In defining the Sahana roadmap it is always good to refresh our minds of the objective we have in developing Sahana. Our goals are:

  1. Primary: Help alleviate human suffering and help save lives through the effecient use of IT during a disaster
  2. Bring together a diverse set of actors from Government, Emergency Management, NGOs, INGOs, spontaneous volunteers and victims themselves in responding effectively to a disaster
  3. Empower the victims, responders, volunteers and their friends/families during a disaster
  4. Help protect victim data and reduce the opportunity for data abuse
  5. Provide a Free and Open Source solution end-to-end available to everyone
