:loudspeaker: Hello Folks :loudspeaker:

We are excited to recap the Tinkerhub - Tech4Good Impact Bootcamp, a part of Tinkerhub May Learning Series! :rocket::books:

Facilitated by Shemeer and Jinso from Tech4Good Labs, Mehar from Tinkerhub, and Vignesh from the Corona safe network, the Bootcamp was a resounding success, with great participation from our vibrant community! :clap:

Here’s a quick snapshot of what we covered:

  • Sensitization on Social Issues: We delved deeper into the essence of social organizations, the complex problems they tackle, and the unique challenges faced by non-profits and the communities they serve. This segment aimed to provide a more profound understanding of social issues. :earth_africa::bulb:

  • Tech Solutions Showcase: We highlighted actual use cases of non-profits leveraging FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) for social impact. Innovative tools that address the challenges faced by these organizations were presented, demonstrating the power of technology in driving meaningful change. :desktop_computer::dart:

  • Hands-On Tool Testing: One core activity saw participants trying out a range of different tools, many installed locally or on the web, and creating innovative use cases. This hands-on approach underscored the practical applicability of these tools in solving real-world challenges. :man_technologist::hammer_and_wrench:

  • Networking: The Bootcamp fostered a thriving environment to connect like-minded individuals, encouraging collaboration to create tech-driven solutions for social good. :handshake::globe_with_meridians:

Our gratitude goes out to everyone who attended, making the Bootcamp a fruitful learning experience. If you missed it, don’t worry! Stay tuned for more events like this, where we empower change with technology, focusing on the transformative power of FOSS. :tada::dizzy:
