TechCamps are a Department of State program that galvanizes the technology community across the globe to assist civil society organizations (CSO) by providing capabilities, resources and assistance to enable them to harness the latest information and communication technology advances to build their digital capacity. TechCamps bring together technologists and CSOs in a particular country or region to brainstorm on the challenges they currently face in their communities. These groups work together to develop real-time solutions to address these challenges. After a TechCamp event is over and problems have been identified, CSOs are connected to global networks of technologists, sponsors and digital volunteers interested in helping implement solutions.
Here in India we’ve held TechCamps in Bengaluru, Chennai, Mumbai, New Delhi, a mini TechCamp in Coimbatore and Madurai (PDF: 2.13 MB). Check out our Flickr page & our Facebook pages for information on upcoming TechCamps in this region.
