Do_action WordPress Lagos Charity Hackathon

Fancy working on projects that serves a greater (social) good? Well, the Lagos WordPress Community in partnership with the WordPress Global Foundation and How Do You Tech Ltd is organizing a 1-day hackathon (July 14, 2018) aimed at building useful websites for 5 duly registered non-profit organizations in the region that are impacting and inspiring lives in Lagos, Nigeria.

Call for Non-Profit Organisations

Right now, we are looking for non-profit organisations to apply to be a part of the day. Along with the website (domain and hosting paid for three years), selected organisations will receive WordPress training on the day of the 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 in the form below on or before 30th May 2018. After that date, we will make our selections and let you know whether or not your organisation has been selected to participate.

P.S: we will only accept registered non-profit organisations operating in or around Lagos.

Who can participate?

Each website will be built by a team of 4 – 8 people in the following roles:

  • Project Managers
  • Developers
  • Designers/Graphic Artists
  • Content Writers
  • Social Media Professionals

So, if you are from in and around Lagos 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.

Sponsorship

We are also looking for sponsors to make this event successful. We expect a participation of at least 40 people on the day, and hope to build 5 websites. Sponsors for hosting, themes, plugins, or any other expenses are welcome.

In return:

  • You can have representation at the event, (as participants, not spectators).
  • We will add your logo to the sponsors list on this page.
  • We will make social media announcements before, during and after the event.
  • You can distribute your custom branded swag to the participants.
