The WordPress South Africa community is a network of developers, designers, and website builders who believe that WordPress is the perfect platform for any organisation to use to build their online presence effectively.
Since 2014, our community has hosted the do_action WordPress Charity Hackathon in Cape Town where we have spent a full day building brand new websites for a selection of local charities and NGOs.
In 2020, due to the outbreak of the Covid pandemic, we took the event national and built websites for charities and NGO’s from all over the country, working in remote teams across a period of a few weeks.
This year’s event will retain the national online format, but we’ll be encouraging folks to try and build teams with members that are close to each other geographically. This would allow teams to either keep working remotely or meet up and work in person if they so wish.
Open for Applications
We are now open to non-profit applications. If you are a registered non-profit organization in South Africa that needs a website, please fill in the form below. We can’t promise that we will be able to accept everyone, but we will do our best to try. Applications will remain open until the 1st of June 2022.
