We have developed an app that allows you to record a profile picture for each beneficiary, which can be a useful tool for a number of reasons.

This can help prevent duplication and ensure that the NPO has accurate and up-to-date information about its beneficiaries. Additionally, having photos associated with each beneficiary's profile can make it easier for the NPO to search for and find specific individuals, as the photos can serve as a visual aid.
