Do you have friends at nonprofits in Brazil who might benefit from having hands-on techies help them address technology needs?
The short story:
NetSquared.org and Sun Microsystems are organizing developers to kick-off a project designed to help NGO’s harness the power of open source and web-based technologies to address the social issues they’re working on.
We need help from people with experience at the intersection of tech and civil society beyond the U.S. in order to mobilize Brazilian NGO’s, University Computing Clubs, and others to participate at this October 1, 2008 event, Collaborating for Change.
Know of organizations, friends, or colleagues who would be interested in participating? Here is a quick message you can send to them:
My friends at NetSquared.org (a technology nonprofit based in SF, CA) are working on a project that leverages the technical expertise of University developers on behalf of Sao Paolo-area NGO’s working on social-benefit Projects.
