Design to Transform is an event seeking to help Community Based Organizations (CBOs) to articulate their message on the Internet. This will be done by designing professional websites for these organizations during a one day hackathon challenge.
In Kenya, many of these organizations are yet to establish an impressive digital footprint. They have not been able to catch up with what the Internet is offering as far as publicity and visibility is concerned. An online presence will boost the reach of these organizations.
This inaugural event will design and set up websites for the CBOs to help them connect donors and partners with worthy causes in need of support. The organizations will have the added advantage of being able to share their stories and projects online.
The D2T project will also train and build the capacity of individuals who are passionate about Web Design and Development. This will provide them a platform to transform their community through the use of technology.
The D2T event will bring together techies with generous hearts to a one day hackathon challenge. The primary goal of this initiative is to design professional websites for community based organizations to improve their visibility and boost their online presence.
