“How can people help those in need by doing what they love?”
The Apps4Good Hackathon aims to build re-usable open source mobile apps and platforms. Apps4Good harnesses the talent and passion of software developers, graphic designers, social media gurus, marketing experts etc. to give back to their community by building local solutions to local problems.
This round of hackathons will take place in four different cities: Saskatoon (Canada), Regina (Canada), Accra (Ghana) and Lusaka (Zambia) simultaneously with the same common goal to build re-usable open source apps for civic engagement.
We’ll be “hacking a better Lusaka” ;).
“Hackathons are a great way to meet new people, share ideas and gain skills, all while giving back to your communities – in other words, help those in need by doing what you love.” – Dale Zak (Founder – Apps4Good)
“Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people to change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
