Charity Coder NGOs Quest 2016 – Developing Free Websites for NGOs
Deadline: September 7, 2016
Exciting opportunity for Non-governmental Organization leaders! Applications are now invited for the 2016 Charity Coder NGOs Quest, an initiative to help NGOs in Africa develop web platforms towards promoting the cause they seek to pursue and also growing a larger audience. It is envisaged that through these web platforms, NGOs can gain more support and actualize their goals faster.
Do you represent an NGO? Is your focus in one of these areas; Poverty, Health, Security, Education, Leadership, Empowerment, Gender Balance, Domestic Violence or Child/Human Trafficking? Are you yet to get the kind of online presence that would help you achieve the goals of your NGO? Then this opportunity is for you. Charity Coder wants to help you achieve your cause.
“I am a Charity Coder and I want to help you achieve the good cause you have chosen to pursue. For every line of code I write, I want someone, somewhere in Africa, to get that quality education he/she deserves. For every hour I spend on a project, I want someone, somewhere in Africa to get quality health services. For every web platform I develop for an NGO for Free, I want you to know that someone needs your care, help and attention.” – Patrick Ileanwa Ocheja, Founder, Charity Coder.
Selected NGOs will enjoy premium services such as website development and maintenance, search engine optimization, social media campaigns and hands-on training on platform management all for free.
Charity Coder is a community of developers who have chosen to give back to society by supporting good causes through practical application of software engineering and development skills.
Prospective NGOs in this program are require to:
- Be based in Africa.
- Focus on solving problems in any of these areas: Poverty, Health, Security, Education, Leadership, Empowerment, Gender Balance, Domestic Violence or Child/Human Trafficking.
- Have embarked on not less than 2 projects with social impact.
