Computer for Schools x openhack

Want to be a part of something fun whilst contributing positively towards humanity?

Openhack has teamed up with Engineers Without Borders in helping them with their project Computer for Schools.

Computers for Schools is a project with the goal of giving people in developing countries access to computers. The project was successfully implemented in Cameroon in 2017 and a trip to Liberia is planned for early 2020.

We need your help in improving the open source operating system on our meet-up on 23rd of May at Impact Hub Stockholm.

What will happen during the meet-up?
• An introduction of how to contribute to an open source project, specifically Kolibri. Bootstrapping the developer environment.
• An introduction to the computer for schools whole setup

No coding experience is needed, but it will be helpful. Make sure to join us in making the world a slightly better place, one meet-up at a time!
