Case study - Give Backathon - The world’s first indigenous hackathon!

The Streets Movement Organisation (TSM) empowers individuals to make positive change in themselves and the world, and were one of four Indigenous charities who took part in Give Backathon, the world’s first Indigenous hackathon which brought together software developers and creative thinkers to build tech-based solutions for the Indigenous charities.

TSM were looking for a game-changing solution to discover the needs of Indigenous communities, in different locations, throughout Australia that would allow them to develop and provide the ideal program for each community they serve. 

During the event two teams worked on addressing the challenge by creating map visualisations of Australia, which displayed important information such as graduation and unemployment rates that TSM can use to work out the most suitable program(s) to run in each community and increase their positive impact.

We were all very impressed with the event and what the teams were able to produce in that short time.
