Recap | George Hacks partners with Lantuun Dohio for Human Trafficking Hackathon
Earlier this month, George Hacks wrapped up its first major event of the year, a two-week human trafficking hackathon in partnership with nonprofit organization Lantuun Dohio.
Lantuun Dohio was established to eradicate human trafficking and protect children from violence and exploitation in Mongolia. Their main approach is to work with children in vulnerable areas and foster self-worth and respect in their minds from a young age.
George Hacks and Lantuun Dohio are challenging GW students to work together to develop solutions in innovation marathon. The hackathon spanned sixteen days and challenged students to dive into pitches ranging from the reintegration of children into society after trauma experienced in trafficking to exploring solar panel efficiency.
