Surat: An android phone based application, The Bird Tap, has been launched in Surat by a non-governmental organisation (NGO), Prayas Team Environment Charitable Trust (PTECT), with an aim to provide respite to thirsty birds by enabling application users to procure earthen water pots from the registered centres and install them at several places in their houses and streets. The organisation distributes earthen water pots every year in summers in Surat city, but it has come up with the new idea of launching the application to get systematic feedback from the people.
The president of the organisation, Darshan Desai, said Surat would be the pioneer in launching the organised effort in helping the animals and birds, and also measure the result of the effort. The application sends a reminder to people to not forget to refill the pot everyday and users can also intimate that they have done the compassionate act, added Desai. This unique application will enable the compassionate people register their name and number, and after installing the pot they can upload the photo of the place which will then be located on map by others. Thus, large number of people can connect with this initiative.
