What is a do_action Charity Hackathon?
Over the course of selected duration, groups of volunteers from a local WordPress community and the participating non-profit organisations will come together to plan, design and build the NGOs a brand new, high quality & useful professional website.
About the Nigerian Community
The WordPress Nigerian community is a network of developers, designers, content creators, digital marketers, polyglots and WordPress users who believe that WordPress is a tool for personal and professional empowerment. For the last three years, our communities has hosted the do_action WordPress Charity Hackathon in some of our cities physically where we have spent a full day building brand new websites for a selection of local charities and NGOs.
This year, for the 2nd annual regional do_action Nigeria event, we are going to be repeating this for a handful number of charitable organisations!
Who can participate?
In order to bring these websites to life, we are looking for applications from registered NGOs who do not have a website and volunteers from all over the country to be Project Managers, Developers, Designers, Social Media Managers, Content Managers, and Quality Assurance Testers to work with each non-profit organisation. As soon as the NGOs are selected, volunteers can begin to sign up for different roles.
