Currently,the communication of the social sustainability projects in MSU hasnot been very effective. This is especially because of the highnumber of students that makes it hard to track any significantopportunities that will ensure that students effectively give back tothe community through sustainable projects. Among the major issuescurrently affecting MSU are environmental issues, equality, healthand volunteering amongst other preferences. Therefore, the proposalon the app is in line with the objectives of ensuring that there isawareness about to these issues. There is a need to enhance socialsustainability, especially because of the increased levels ofignorance from the student body that requires immediate redress.
