"BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD..." MAHATMA GANDHI
Challengers are given the opportunity to take on a problem that they feel passionately about and bring their idea into reality, together with mentors and industry experts. Here's a selection of some of our most successful projects.
HackaDurban & The Durban Innovation Hub
In 2014, in partnership with the Durban Innovation Hub, Peter Bailey took on the ambitious plan to create a national Hackathon hosted in Durban as a part of the HackaGlobal initiative. Over the two weeks Peter and NK (Head Honcho at The Durban Innovation Hub) brought together over 40 coders, hustlers and designers to create Durban's first full fledged Hackathon.
Since 2014, Peter Bailey has been supporting NK and The Durban Innovation Hub across various initiatives to develop a technology-entrepreneurship consultancy.
In the summer of 2016, we supported NK to visit the UK to learn more about the entrepreneurship and tech scene in the UK.
The Ukuthemba Project
In 2015, Beth Whipp and Laura Maxwell launched the Ukuthemba Project, to break the destructive mentality towards rape across South Africa. Whilst they were on the programme, they partnered with the Jes Foord Foundation, to empower community leaders to mentor young people. Through a programme of sessions covering topics such as gender roles, relationships, sex and rape, they created an educational competition & campaign in the Hammersdale community in Kwazulu-Natal.
