- Ethiopia is the second most-populous country in Africa with more than 70% of its population under the age of 35. This population of youth faces enormous challenges in terms of education, employment, access to technology, and opportunities to create and innovate. Hackathon participants are between the age of 18-25 thus hosting a Hackathon at American Spaces allows PAS Addis to better understand how best to inspire Ethiopian youth to imagine, plan, compose, invent, create, innovate, build and construct.
- Collaborate with the U.S. Embassy to organize and execute 7 hackathons over the course of the one-year grant period, with four quarterly events in Addis Ababa and three at regional American Corners in Jimma, Bahir Dar, and Dire Dawa. Topics will be provided by the Embassy in coordination with the implementing partner.
- Award amounts: awards may reach a maximum of $39,060
- Total available funding: $39,060
- Anticipated program start date: October 2018
