“No country can achieve its full potential unless it draws on the talents of all its people, and that includes… women and girls.”

– Barack Obama

#OfficeOfTheCitizenHackathon (TOMORROW!)

We expect to launch the #OfficeOfTheCitizen portal in October – “not every time rant; sometimes act!”

The portal will effectively integrate the efforts of active citizens and activists in order to produce well worked out responses to identified issues.

The journey to unveiling the portal begins tomorrow with the Office of the Citizen hackathon.
Supported by Google, Microsoft, TechCabal and AIT’s Infotech Network.
