At RHoK Australia

We strive to make the world a better place, one social hackathon at a time. 

 

Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) is a global community of volunteers from the tech industry who collaborate with non-profit organisations and social entrepreneurs to help solve challenges facing society. Twice a year RHoK Australia runs weekend long hackathons in various locations around Australia. Utilising the skills of talented technologists, hackers and creative thinkers, RHoK hackathons provide an opportunity for community groups and social enterprises to co-develop solutions that may not otherwise be realised.

 
 

This is how we RHoK

Help create Tech for Social Good

Changemaker applications for our 2018 Summer Hackathon are now open

If you are a charity, community group, social enterprise or individual involved with a project that that could benefit from short-term professional technical, creative or business management-related help and advice, then we may be able to help. Find out how you can become a RHoK Changemaker.

Over the course of 48 hours, diverse teams of hackers assemble around our changemakers to work fast and furious, have fun, and create real social impact. It's an opportunity to work in a collaborative environment to help create innovative technology solutions to social problems. 

We are looking for ‘Goldilocks’ problems; they need to be small enough so that they can be progressed over a weekend, but large enough to make a real difference.
— Cal Founder, RHoK Australia Community Manager
 

Our Impact

Our Impact

We work closely with our changemakers in the lead up to the hackathon to make sure they have something which our hackers can readily take on. The solutions we create are open-source and our approach is lean and agile.  Over the past four years we've gathered over 500 hackers and helped over 40 charities and community groups.
