do_action_phc Charity Hackathon
do_action_phc is going to be an annual event where our local WordPress Port Harcourt Community comes together to give back to the broader community of Port Harcourt and Nigeria by building websites for multiple non-profit organisations. All of the sites are built for free by volunteers.
do_action hackathons are community-organized events that are focused on using WordPress to give deserving charitable organisations their own online presence. Each do_action event includes participants from the local WordPress community coming together to plan and build brand new websites for a number of local nonprofits in one day.
Who can participate?
Each such website will be built by a team of 6-8 people in the following roles:
- Project Managers
- Designers/ Graphic Artists
- Content Writers
- Social Media Managers
- Developers ( 2 or 3)
- QA Testers
So, if you’re from in and around Pot Harcourt with some expertise in WordPress, or even just an interest in WordPress, you are very welcome to come and participate.
What do participants get?
You get to come together and
- Work in teams, learn from each other, and share knowledge and skills,
- Help extremely worthy local causes benefit by getting an expertly crafted website,
- We'll shawer you with gifts,
- Oh, and we’ll have fun and make new friends while we’re about it!
Your meals and refreshments throughout the day will be taken care of and we’ll get you some awesome swag to take back with you.
For NGOs/ Non-profits
If you’re a charity or non-profit organisation you don’t need to allocate some of your already hard-stretched funds for what would probably be a low-budget website. By participating in this event you have the chance to get a well designed and expertly developed new website, created by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable team of volunteers, for absolutely nothing – freeing up your limited funds to be spent on your primary cause – and in a single day, so no long drawn out projects that sap your time and energy and will be finished “sometime soon”!
To participate just fill in the application form at doaction.org/event/portharcourt
At least one or two representative of your non-profit organisation or charity will have to be present during the hackathon and will be a part of the team building the website. Your representatives and your organization will also be given free training on using WordPress through sessions and workshops during the day
