Simple effective tech to connect communities in crisis
The world is more connected than ever, but some communities are still cut off from vital resources like electricity and health care. In this solution-oriented talk, tech activist Johanna Figueira discusses her work with Code for Venezuela.
We're just getting started
Group of friends started to meet to form an organizations that could seat at the intersection of social good and technology.
The group officially started to work together with the aim of putting together an event to kick-off the community.
The community expanded and a hackathon of three days happened in more than 8 cities and 300 participants around the world.
The community continued to work on the most promising projects that were created in the hackathon. Meditweets and Blackout trackers evolved and were taken to production.
Code for Venezuela started to develop a platform to support decision making based on data analytics. Focused on non-profits working on the Venezuelan humanitarian crisis.
The organization got a grant from Open Society Foundations to continue to invest in the Angostura Platform and to consolidate the network of volunteers in the group.
Expanding our impact by making sure that more organizations can benefit from the solutions we are working on.
