TechFugees Australia is the Sydney tech community's response to the current refugee crisis involving a network of concerned individuals and inspired by a similar event in Europe two months ago.
The TechFugees Australia Hackathon will bring together developers, designers, entrepreneurs and community members to develop creative tech solutions so that refugee families can settle quickly into the Australian community. Hacker Teams will develop tech solutions for refugee settlement challenges articulated by our partners, Settlement Services International (SSI) the largest not-for-profit humanitarian settlement organisation in Australia and STARTTS a not-for-profit providing psychological and counselling support for refugees to help them rebuild their lives in Australia.
Prizes will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
