Who we work with.

Since 2011 we've gathered over 500 hackers and helped over 100 organisations find tech enabled solutions to pressing social problems.

We are widely acknowledged in Australia as one of the pioneers in this space. Our unique combination of hackathons and smaller follow up events ensure that we get our solutions across the finish line and positively impact the wider community.

We work with charities, not-for-profit organisations in the social sector, as well as social entrepreneurs making a positive impact on society. Previous changemakers include ygap and SheStarts alumni.

Our Partners

We would like to welcome Our Community into the RHoK family as our newest Regional Partner.


Farewell & Thank-you

We would like to thank DiUS for their generous support over the past 8 years. As our longest National Partner, DiUS have been instrumental in helping Random Hacks of Kindness Australia to become the largest and most sustainable of RHoK’s global communities.

They don't just talk about tech for good, they put their money where their mouth is and the work we’ve done just wouldn't be possible without their support and financial contributions.

We chose to join RHoK because we wanted to give back to the communities in a which we live. Unexpectedly, we also found value in opportunities to connect with like-minded people with varied skills, and from diverse organisations.
— Daryl Wilding-McBride, CTO DiUS Computing
