PeaceGeeks is hosting its 1st hackathon of 2015 and its 2nd ever Random Hacks of Kindness to help some incredible organizations that are working on peace and human rights issues around the world. Like the Nakuru Gender-Based Violence Network in Kenya, that is helping to raise awareness about violence against women to local health authorities. Or Community Empowerment for Progress Organization in South Sudan, that is looking at how to leverage social media to challenge the escalation of violence in South Sudan. Or Aid Watch Palestine which aims to made aid to Palestine more transparent and accountable to Palestinians.
