She said she knew 1040i's media specialist Jacob Meyer, which led to the app development for the organization.

Meyer said in an interview via Skype from Abidjan, Ivory Coast, before the trip started that he planned to use a satellite phone to upload photos and videos to the 1040i website and app throughout the four-week trip this month in Ivory Coast.

Sections in the 1040i app include the group's blog, videos, a section to make a donation and a way for people to apply to volunteer for future trips. It also includes a map of where 1040i's efforts are concentrated and a way for people to donate. Tran said she hopes to continue to improve and update it.

“This is a really good story for other nonprofits to look to technology to improve how they reach for volunteers and supporters,” Tran said.
