Hey there!

 
 

Mehackit is a social business leveraging and contributing to open source technologies and their creative use for teaching and learning. We democratize access to technology by empowering young people. We want them to experience creative control over technology instead of merely assimilating to it!

Our Vision we share with our corporate citizenship partner Samsung - to make technology a force for good in the world! We want young people to build a healthy relationship with technology.

Our Mission is to support every educator and young adult to get creative, confident and curious about technology. Our activities - professional development training, courses, workshops and events - all contribute towards discovering the joys of creative technology. We stand for UN Development Program Goal 4 "Quality education".  

Affordable, reliable and context-sensitive digital education can promote equal opportunities for girls and boys and reduce inequalities by ensuring every child has access to high quality content.
— Goal 4: Quality education (SDGs)
