We started Nearby Shops as an Open-Source project to help local vendors. Nearby Shops is a Nonprofit alternative to Grubhub and Instacart. We see how workers and local vendors are getting exploited by commercial platforms like Uber and Amazon.

So we just wanted to create an ethical alternative to these commercial platforms. Unlike other platforms we don't have shareholders and we work on cooperative business model.

If you like this Idea please help us and Support Us. We are looking for volunteers. Dont worry we are not looking to extract free work from you on the name of charity.

Even as a volunteer you will have opportunities to earn income and we will ensure that you are compensated properly and you are not exploited.
