Co.Station Events | Big Bloom | Hackathon for Good

Who are they?

Bxl Refugees works on giving back dignity to refugees on their way to another country:

  • A place to sleep
  • Food
  • Clothes
  • Toiletries

Their challenges?

Increase donations to meet temporary refugees’ basic needs such as food, clothes and toiletries, in particular:

  • suitable donations, as 70% of the current donations do not meet the real needs,
  • all year long, not only in winter,
  • by leveraging volunteers support through optimal management and communication.

WHY IS THIS HACKATHON-STYLE EVENT A GOOD IDEA?

FOR PARTICIPANTS, A LEARNING EXPERIENCE
