RHoK Bangalore (Random Hacks of Kindness ) is a Community of humanitarian hackers and makers since 2010. It is the local chapter of the global RHoK community. We get together a few times every year through dedicated hackathons to solve humanitarian issues.

The problems worked on in this hackathon are socially inclined . We bring together a group of technology experts from industry and academia and then subject matter experts from development sector (NGOs, etc) pitch problem statements to them. The techies form groups, pick a problem statement and start hacking over the weekend to come up with an app or proof of concept of the tech solution.
The Bangalore Hackathon has worked with various ideas like water , disaster , environment , corruption over the past 4-5 years .
