All of our “lockdown” problems (because we have been advised to avoid crowds, stay at home, and a lot of shops have also closed) have been solved thanks to one website that has all your services met and questions answered under one virtual roof.
Maltatogether.com is a centralised platform where people can share their initiatives and services offering, online services like classes, tips, how to keep the kids occupied etc. You can find all service providers that offer delivery, or can provide maintenance and repair services for any appliances you need. Best part of all? It is SUPER simple to use!
“We have over 230 initiatives ranging from exercise classes, language classes, arts and crafts, wine classes. and loads of things you can do while at home,” Mark Weingard, the brains behind maltatogether.com shares.
There’s even a helpline guide, guiding you to resolving any problem you might currently be facing, including guided councelling and psychoterapists, amongst others.
“We’ve even launched a couple of competitions, like a short story competition for all budding writers. Any written piece of up to 500 words can be submitted within the four different age groups. Entries for the current competition need to be submitted by next Friday, 10th April. We’re encouraging people to use their creative talents and a cash prize of 20 euro will be given for each age group,” Mark shares.
“Once all of this is over, we are gathering the best written talent submitted and creating a beautiful publication to be shared with the public”
They’ve even got an art competition that allows artists to create fantastic art, and send it to us. Ages five and above are welcome to submit works of art using any material and utensils they’d prefer.
“If you offer a service, you can visit the website and you’ll find a section that allows you to submit a service. It takes less than a minute to put in all your details and have your service showing on our site. You can do the same with any initiatives you might have.”
Maltatogether.com is part of a non-profit initiative, and was created by ‘The Academy of Givers’, a philanthropic association seeking to inspire social cooperation among the business community of Malta. It is currently run by employees of the Iniala Group in Malta, but looks to operate independently in the future as the initiative grows.
