ⓘ Hackers for Charity

Hackers for Charity is a non-profit organization started by Johnny Long. Known by its byline, "I Hack Charities", the organization collects computer and office equipment to donate to underdeveloped countries. Along with coordinating the donation of goods and supplies, Johnny lived in Uganda with his family for seven years, and helped set up computer networks and build village infrastructures. In addition, they started a computer training center to provide free and low-cost technical training, a hackerspace, a restaurant, and a leather working program, all based in Jinja Uganda. Each of these projects are still running. These projects were funded by donations from the hacker community through fundraising efforts at various conferences.

In 2010 in Dissecting the Hack: The F0rb1dd3n Network, an extensive interview of Johnny Long was published with Hackers for Charity discussed extensively.
