Join with Snake Nation as we hack to end hunger in Northern Nigeria with Empower 54! We will be working to create an app that will be used in the field in January 2017, to help track and reconnect IDP families as they rebuild their lives after escaping Boko Haram.
This is an online only challenge! All submissions will need to be screencasts posted to the Snake Nation Facebook page for each round.
Empower 54 is a nonprofit helping underprivileged Africans. Lack of proper accountability, accessibility and record keeping has led to lack of reliable information in IDP, refugee camps and remote African communities.
As an organization working in remote communities in need of proper data to determine solutions to challenges in communities, we have decided to create the Empower 54 Biodata and BioMetrics Database to enable us obtain and retain information that will reconnect displaced families and enable rural development.
Snake Nation is in partnership with Empower 54 to bring together technology and culture to help further their cause and lift up their work to a wider audience. We will be providing support from the Snake Nation Societies, to connect with coders and content creators on the African continent.
