Sahana Software Foundation

This particular Eden document work-flow is simply a guide on how to create a project on the Sahana Software Foundation.

Why should I add a project?

Adding a project on the Sahana Software will give you a chance of responding effectively to disasters in your community, and probably to the neighbouring communities as well. This software has been used, for example to enable effective disaster response during the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Simply following the instructions below can help you, as an interested user, to create your own project on the Sahana Software Foundation. Further Details…

Add Staff and Volunteers to Project


This section will help you to add Staff or Volunteers to a project. Screenshots have been provided for further reference.


You should be logged in first to add staff and volunteers to a project. Once you have successfully logged in, click on ‘Projects’ button in the Response Section on the homepage. Now if you have already created the project then search your program in the list and click on ‘Open’ button (Left to the Project Name) otherwise to Create a new project see below section ‘How to create project’.

In the four tabs above the Basic Detail forms of the Project you would see ‘Staff’ and ‘Volunteers’. Click on the tab accordingly. In the textbox type the first two alphabets of the person and it would suggest you the names. Select the appropriate name and click on ‘Save’.

If you want to add a new volunteer or Staff member to the project then click on ‘Add Volunteer’ or ‘Add Staff Member’ on right side of the textbox and fill the details. Once registered, search the name in the textbox and click on ‘Save’.

That's it!
