Hey there!

 
 

Mehackit is a social business leveraging and contributing to open source technologies and their creative use for teaching and learning. 

Our mission is to democratize access to technology by empowering young people. We want them to experience creative control over technology instead of merely assimilating to it! 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)
