  • Venue: iHub
  • Date: Saturday 18th August 2012
  • Starts: 8:00am

What would happen if you put a group of women in one place and asked them to come up with applications that would be relevant to them in 48 hours? Akirachix together with Mobile Garage  want to carry out this experiment.

We have never done this before and we hope that we will get relevant and interesting applications. On August 18th and 19th 2012, Akirachix will be hosting a Girls Hackathon at the iHub Nairobi. The applications that we will build will be targeted specifically towards women and their needs.


Objectives of the Hackathon

To bring together women from different disciplines to co-create prototype solutions that can address the challenges girls and women face in their day to day lives.
Jump start the design process for the creation of apps that target women and girls
Just have fun as we code.
