Only a few days old, OrangeTree Answers has been launched and come onto the scene as the newest question and answer website designed especially for Zimbabwe. Simple-looking and very minimalistic, the platform allows users to ask questions and receive responses (answers) from the community. OrangeTree Answers runs on an open source platform.
As long as your question is in line with the rules, OrangeTree Answers says you can ask anything and everything, including arts and culture, entertainment, pregnancy and parenting, technology, computers and gadgets, local businesses, shopping and even lover and relationship questions – just to mention a few.
The platform has a few unique key features; including what they are most proud of, a collaborative expert program through which identified industry experts provide solid and correct answers in order to increase the value of the knowledge distributed on the website. Despite this, it largely remains a platform for the broader Zimbabwean community.
“We want to contribute, in our own way, to the online knowledge base in Zimbabwe. This is just one of the many ways in which the country can put more content online.”
OrangeTree is currently working out the possibility of providing the platform in both Shona and Ndebele.
