Bolsa do Voluntariado is a project launched in 2006 by ENTRAJUDA, an organisation founded in 2004 to provide social solidarity institutions with management and organisational tools to increase the efficiency of their resources and the effectiveness of their results.
Bolsa do Voluntariado serves as a meeting point between the demand and supply of volunteer work. The result is a virtual volunteering “market”, where it’s possible to articulate the need for volunteer work by area with the current availability of people and entities. The aspiration for this new website was, on the one hand, to improve and update all the technical architecture and, on the other hand, to design a modern experience that would optimise the user’s journey.
“The new solution has precisely this ambition. We hope to make it easier for volunteers and organisations to come together, generating social impact. It was crucial to have a committed partner like Xpand IT, who captured our needs and proposed the most appropriate solution with outstanding professionalism and assertiveness.”
Isabel Jonet – President, ENTRAJUDA

Main Technologies Used:
Azure is Microsoft’s cloud platform. Azure has integrated tools, pre-built templates and managed services, meaning that developers and IT professionals can quickly build and manage their apps with technologies they are familiar with, using skills they already have.
Furthermore, Azure supports mainstream operating systems and almost every programming language, framework, tool, database and device.
Orchard Core has two distinct layers: on the one hand, it’s an open-source framework for building modular and multi-tenant applications in ASP.Net Core. On the other hand, it’s a CMS (Content Management System) platform for the web.
