The information items are divided into who we are, what we do, how we do and with who we do, that means, who are our partners. The tool allows different audiences such as funders, partners, governments and even officials of social organizations to know relevant data and print a report. For organizations, the report is use as a social report or to present supporters. "The site systematize the information and makes it easier, that for lack of appeal and even training, had trouble paying bills", continued Lucy.
