"Incredible experience! Working with a great group of people from around the world to impact organizations doing amazing work on the ground in Nepal."
Visit with nonprofits, leaders and experts as you are immersed in the information and systems behind the issue. Discover and learn as a team, as you explore the culture with every sense.
Work with nonprofits to identify their needs, form teams and create tech-based solutions. Whether you are a developer, designer, marketer - every skill set is valuable.
Your solutions directly address the barriers experienced by nonprofits. After the hackathon, our Expedition Grants Program awards funds to support nonprofits as they implement solutions developed in the hackathon.
See how volunteers developed an online marketplace to sell handicrafts created by human trafficking survivors.
Each expedition we grant over 20% to local nonprofits. This is dedicated to the implementation of projects built in the hackathon.
Each expedition we allocate 30% to fund a entire school in India. This impacts over 300 children each year.
The expedition trip to Greece was transformational. I met incredible individuals that inspired me to seek new perspectives, including the others on the expedition, individuals working in the NGOs that we worked with, and the refugees that we met in the camp. I was able to see the skills I use daily at Google help passionate members of an NGO align around a shared mission and vision to change the acclimation process for refugees. Most importantly, my normal bubble was shaken, reminding me how lucky I am, and that I have a unique opportunity to use the resources and skills that I have to help others that may have all that I do.
I feel enormously privileged to have been a part of this trip. My life is altered. We love both you and Nicole, as well as the trip leaders for giving us this opportunity and taking care of our needs. The trip was very well organized, there could have been huge glitches but everything sorted itself out, and we go back richer people with eyes wide open and hearts motivated to make a difference. We all need to be spokespeople for this cause and empower women with more confidence and education. Thanks for leading the charge on this so admirably. You're an inspiration.
Keep up the great work! I'm really grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of such a great group and project!
