Hack for Locals is an annual hackathon dedicated to the development of innovative solutions to create safer communities across Ukraine. The direction of the search for solutions is rapidly evolving, and changes from year to year. This year it is dedicated to the “16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence” Global Initiative. According to official statistics, women and girls are affected the most by violence in the world, as well as in Ukraine, for example, about 90% of people who have experienced domestic violence in Ukraine are women.
This year, Hack for Locals 3.0 participants are invited to focus on finding solutions to prevent and combat various forms of violence.
Anyone can join in the hackathon — developers and designers, marketers and entrepreneurs, students, managers, government officials, and civil society enthusiasts. Both individual participants and teams will be invited to participate.
Three best projects will receive grant support for the implementation of their ideas up to U.S. $15,000 and will be implemented in partnership with the communities of Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson oblasts.
