Hacking For Development
Ghana, as a rapidly developing nation, has immense potential to apply software and/or hardware products to improve and quicken the overall development of the country.
To be able to compete in the global market, relevant authorities need to create avenues that will allow young individuals in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields to apply their technical skills to solve pressing issues we face. Unfortunately, there are not enough of these opportunities and as a result, we do not get to see the ingenuity of the young population of Ghana put to use.
In line with our core values of progressive thinking and youth empowerment, we seek to help solve this problem by creating an environment that will allow young innovators, between the ages of 16 and 28, share ideas and have the required mentorship and assistance necessary to implement some of these ideas over the course of three consecutive days.
In addition to providing a conducive environment for idea generation and development, our T-LABS team will also offer guidance and mentorship throughout the development process, in addition to coaching hackers on ways they could make their hackathon developments valuable to Ghana and the world at large.
This event shall take place from the 29th of June to the 1st of July 2018 at SOS-Hermann Gmeiner International College in Tema, Ghana.
