Become a Solve For XX Sponsor. Donate to Our Partner Organizations.

In the summer of 2018, Solve For XX launched its first Hackathon in Kampala, Uganda, a country where more than 50 percent of the country lives in extreme poverty, lacking access to technology, education, resources and employment opportunities. Of those living in poverty, women remain disproportionally impacted and severely under represented in industries such as tech. 

We believe that through community-led, innovation-driven hackathons for social change, we can develop practical, sustainable, culturally-relevant solutions to solve gender-based issues related to employment, leadership, education and access in communities around the world. 

For $250 USD, one Solve For XX participant can be sponsored with a full scholarship to 24-hour hackathon and the corresponding six-week Solve For XX mentorship program. Please donate to our partner organizations and help make this life-changing opportunity possible.
