There are 83,000 people in Malta at risk of poverty or social exclusion, the latest Eurostat figures show. Meanwhile, the Vodafone Malta Foundation is devoted towards helping vulnerable people by harnessing the power of mobile technology to help deliver good. With the aim of finding a solution to help alleviate the problems of poverty and social exclusion in Malta, we will therefore be holding a hackathon entitled: ‘Vodafone Hackathon: Innovating for Good’. This will essentially be a 48-hour coding marathon, held between the 8th and the 10th of March, where we will be inviting coders and software developers to find a solution to the problems which NGOs and people working in the field have themselves identified to us. A total of EUR 8,000 in prizes will be given out.
