We are gearing up for the upcoming impactNPO hackathon this month, and is just a week away from our biggest hackathon event yet – happening on 21-23 April! This time we are collaborating with non-profit organisations from South Auckland’s One Cooperative and the Cook Islands Development Agency, and there are FIVE exciting projects for social impact that we are helping out with to improve and amplify the work they do with the Pacific Island communities in South Auckland!

If you haven’t already signed up, visit impactnpo2017april.eventbrite.co.nz to reserve your spot and be part of this amazing opportunity to make a difference!

We will also be doing some special celebrations and events to commemorate Anzac Day during the weekend. More details to be released soon, so stay tuned!

We hope you are just as excited about impactNPO April 2017 Hackathon as we are. Our team is tremendously thankful to all our supporters and community members, and we will keep striving to grow and help other impact organisations amplify their mission! We look forward to seeing you at our event!

Best wishes from the impactNPO team

And now, without further ado – let’s find out more about them and the incredible work they are doing!

Tech Challenges

They want to be able to show what happening in the community. Their current website needs a revamp – and they would be keen to get help to make it better. They would also like to find ways to raise awareness for their services – social media and newsletter have been considered!

One Basket

Youth Council

The Youth Council based in South Auckland started in October 2016. They are currently growing and would like to find a way to be able to communicate to the young people that are part of the community, for instance, to inform them of events, meeting times and other youth-related matters.

Cook Islands Development Agency (CIDANZ)

About

CIDANZ help people connect with their heritage and identity as Cook Islanders. They believe that culture and language should be accessible to all.

Tech Challenges

Their current website is not working well, and has been down due to technical difficulties. They would like to build a new website that can showcase the content in different dialects of the Cook Islands, and build harmony and collaboration through breaking down cultural barriers. The idea is to show that even if there are different islands with different languages there should be no rivalry because they are all part of the same community.

They would also like to show the success stories of people in the community, enable people to showcase their ideas – maybe make their own version of PUP UP South (an Auckland Council project).
