India's first and only Technology Volunteering Network

Now you can effect change with your skillsets.

Bringing for-profit talent to non-profits

We are a group of engineers and designers and project managers. Just like you. We spend 4-8 hours a week working on byte sized problems.

As of now, we have 200+ volunteers from companies like google, facebook, flipkart, amazon etc and countless startups. We conduct hackathons where the volunteers build ground breaking solutions in a very short period of time.

If you are a techie and would like to work on problems that affect millions of lives, please reach out to us.

We are a Non-profit for non-profits

If you are a non-profit and working on large scale problems, we might be a match.

Our theory of change

India has over 5 million engineers and designers. Yet non-profits find it difficult to onboard / manage pro-bono tech talent. Our mission is to solve this problem.
