In collaboration with the Global Editors Network, journalists in Ghana have launched a crowdfunding campaign to sponsor hackathons next month to help prevent the potential spread of ebola.
The #HackAgainstEbola events will be geared toward making open source tools for local media to communicate with people via mobile phones.
Accra-based tech and new media nonprofit PenPlusBytes will host the hack scheduled to take place Nov. 19-20.
At the time this article was published the Indiegogo campaign had raised $1,435 toward a $9,000 goal.
