Solve real problems


Our idea is to lean on the organizations that have been in the trenches and build real solutions to the problems in an even more realistic way. Problem statements are submitted by partner organisations with deep domain expertise.

Engage the whole community


Planned projects are executed to through community of colleges and city chapters. Only by leveraging the whole community of developers, we hope to scale our efforts to effect social change.

Build long-lasting solutions


Unlike other free and open source efforts, our projects are designed by our core team of members, based on the problem statements. Solutions built are actively promoted and advertised to ensure continuous adoption.


Problem Statement Identification

Our partner organizations with deep domain expertise suggest problem statements and a possible solution to the issues that can be solved by leveraging technology.


Solutioning And Planning

Our core team of technologists and social scientists evaluate the problem statement, analyze effectiveness of the proposed solution, and devise a way forward.
