Do_action WordPress Lagos Charity Hackathon

The Lagos WordPress Community in partnership with the WordPress Global Foundation, How Do You Tech and Whogohost organised the second 1-day hackathon (on July 20, 2019) aimed at building useful websites for 6 non-profit organizations in the region that are impacting and inspiring lives in Lagos, Nigeria.

Would you like to sponsor this event same time next year?

We are accepting sponsors to make this event possible and successful in 2020. We anticipate a participation of 60 – 100 people next year, and we will be building 6 or more websites. Sponsors for venue, meals, themes, plugins, refreshments, swags, and any other expenses are always welcomed. Send us a mail at, thank you.

P.S: we only accepted non-profit organisations operating in or around Lagos.

Who Participated?

Each website was built by a team of 4 – 8 people in the following roles; Project Manager, Designer, Developers (2), Content Manager, Social Media Manager and Quality Assurance Tester. All roles were filled with only a few no-shows due to unforeseen emergencies on the d-day.

Please Note: All teams members worked together before, during and after the event for the common good of the hackathon and the non-profits.
