Machbarschaft is a neighbourhood help for elderly people without internet access or internet competence
More than 10 million people in Germany are over 60, particularly vulnerable to the virus and in need of help - but without Internet.
We are developing a solution that is accessible to everyone: a technology-supported telephone service where elderly neighbours can submit their requests for purchases. Together with an app where machbar:innen can accept requests from nearby neighbours.
With our technological platform and artificial intelligence, we can provide a fast, secure and scalable service to help
Your data will be transferred to our database and your order already arrives in our app. If your order is not accepted, you will receive a phone call after 24 hours that your order could not be processed yet, but you can extend the order. You can test both sequences by choosing between both at the beginning of the call (so you don't have to wait 24 hours for your call back).
Older people are currently particularly vulnerable and in need of help, but often have no access to digital neighbourhood assistance.
A call to Machbarschaft already helps.
Older neighbours in need of help call the telephone number of Machbarschaft
A bot records the request - whether it is a purchase or another transaction
Our Machbarschaft app shows the inquiries in the neighbourhood
To ensure that you as MACHBAR:IN and helper:in are protected from infection in the best possible way, we have already developed detailed rules of conduct for you and our help seekers that correspond to the RKI guidelines. So everybody is protected!
Our help seekers make a simple phone call via our free hotline* and your requests are processed by artificial intelligence systems and finally sent to our helpers as an order on the app. Without any personal contact!
from all over Germany. We were brought together by the mission to provide safe and fast access to neighbourhood assistance for elderly people without internet access during the Corona pandemic. We are convinced: Together everything is possible!
