Happy Birthday Geeks Without Bounds
Geeks WithOut Bounds is celebrating its second birthday. GWOB is a non-profit accelerator for humanitarian projects.
In their own words,
"We propose a solution to connect developers with an expanded and ever more able global community of responders who can aid in tool learning, maintenance, and further development. We take teams through a process of acceleration which builds upon the best parts of current humanitarian response, and then feeds back into that community. With your support, Geeks Without Bounds will create better tools and the transition necessary to integrate them more effectively into both global response awareness and affected populations"
Applications for their next round open on December 5th and close on December 12th.
Because they're a non-profit, they depend on donations and sponsorships. You can get involved via http://gwob.org/get-involved/
To celebrate the event, they produced the interesting video below about their vision and how the work. Its a bit long (32 minutes) but it shows the passion and commitment of the people involved.
