YCenter is kicking off it’s first hackathon this weekend, starting on May 30. “Impactathon is a citywide hackathon styled event happening from May 30th – June 1st,” said Dhairya Pujara, founder and CEO of the YCenter. “The unique thing about Impactathon is the ‘WHY’ for this event. We want participants to create solutions that can have a real measurable IMPACT for communities in Africa.”

Participants at Impactathon will help create solutions to issues surrounding healthcare delivery faced by communities around the world but specifically in Mozambique, Africa.The event is open to both students and the general public, both those with backgrounds in computer science and those from other fields.

“A participant with coding background may not have domain expertise in the field of healthcare or international community development,” Pujara said. “Hence, to actually come up with solutions, it’s a requirement to collaborate with non-coders and idea people, as we call it.”

When: May 30-June 1
Where: Benjamin’s Desk, 1701 Walnut Street, Philadelphia PA (as well as other locations on Saturday)
