The World Bank is constantly looking for innovative ways to tackle sustainable development issues. The inaugural Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) event in San Francisco provides an opportunity to mobilize the technological community to tackle key disaster relief issues through software development.
The World Bank supports RHoK as it sees this event as the first step in connecting grass-roots movements and building a community of global experts and programmers dedicated to disaster risk management issues. By partnering with software development leaders from the private sector, public goods will be generated.
RHoK events provide an inspiring space for programmers to work with subject matter experts towards a common goal that will save lives and enhance sustainable development efforts around the globe.
