do_action Charity Hackathon in Harare! The event will be held at Moto Republik on 28 July 2018.
A do_action hackathon is a community-organized event focused on using WordPress to give deserving charitable organisations their own online presence. Each do_action event includes participants from the local WordPress community coming together to plan and build brand new websites for a number of local nonprofits in one day.
Call for Non-profit Organisations
Right now, we are looking for nonprofit organisations to apply to be a part of the day. Along with the website, selected organisations will receive WordPress training on the day of do_action so they will have all the skills they need to manage their new online presence.
To apply to be one of these organisations, all you need to do is fill out in the form below by 30 April 2018 – after that date, we will make our selections and let you know.
Note that we will only accept registered non-profit organisations operating in or around Harare.
Who can participate?
Each such website will be built by a team of 6-8 people in the following roles:
- Project Managers
- Designers/ Graphic Artists
- Content Writers
- Social Media Professionals
- QA Testers
So, if you’re from in and around Harare with some expertise in WordPress, or even just an interest in WordPress, you are very welcome to come and participate. A call for participants will be made as soon as the non-profit organisations are selected.
We’re also looking for sponsors to make this event successful. We expect a participation of at most 40 people on the day, and hope to build 4 websites. Sponsors for hosting, themes, plugins, or any other expenses are welcome.
