OPENCARE started in early 2016 with three objectives in mind.

The first: explore the potential of communities to design and deliver care services. Citizen experts and patient innovators were coming up with exciting new products and services for care. What was going on?

Swekshya, young doctor from Nepal, improves access to health care among women

SwekshyaSwekshya Neupane was the first winner of the Youth Times International Movement Global Forum. Her project was simple and necessary. As a young doctor, Swekshya joined a medical team that opened health camps in villages within the Kathmandu Valley. That is when she was struck by the lack of information and education on the very basics of hygiene and care women had.

Youth Global Forum: youth rebuilds Nepal

Bibek and NatashaBibek is a natural entertainer and he easily became the center of the youth event - talkative, funny, energetic, kind of restless. I can imagine that all of these features, combined with passion and drive for change, made his little crazy project such a success in his hometown in Lamjung in Nepal.

Global Youth Forum Indonesia - meet Olga, the winner

OlgaScouting for innovation has become one of my hats some time ago, as i became engaged in building, expanding, improving and shaping a network of creative heads and misfit changemakers. It is a space that sort of extends your juvenility - following those who thinker, improve on, and manifest endless curiosity and passion for knowledge has this incredible effect.

YGF Jakarta 2016 - meet Andi, young Indonesian researcher who innovates agriculture

SriWhen one sees a young girl wrapped heads to toes in proper islamic covers, there might be little expectation that she is a researcher and an inventor. Years of successful propaganda depicting muslim women as oppressed and limited worked out quite well, and I was happy to chat with Andi Nurul to prove it wrong.

A few weeks ago we failed to secure tickets for 33C3. In a way this is good news: Congress is a great event, and it deserves its success. At the same time, though, we were a little sad. We had been looking forward to getting together at Congress. We have run Edgeryders assemblies at 31C3 and 32C3, and were hoping to make this into a small tradition

No Edgeryders assembly at 33C3

Update: we got involved in alt33C3. See here for details. 

Just a quick note to let everyone know that we will not be organizing the Edgeryders Assembly at this year's Chaos Communication Congress (33C3). 

No tasks have been added to this group.

The Bible of Christian Artifacts

Noemi's picture

“The Bible of Christian Artifacts” is one such project that promised to “buy up a bunch of extraordinarily rare and expensive artifacts described in the Bible” as well as “everyday Christian icons and relics.” Christians and treasure hunters alike have flocked to the Kickstarter page, which has migrated to their new website (http://www.christianartifacts.com), to keep up with the online traffic. 

wiki to map needs, clients & existing orgs doing what we can do?

K's picture

In the comment to this post, we can list some examples of already existing orgs which are doing things we can do (better). Institutions and bigger orgs do outsource their stuff and also buy services. Whether they need these services, or whether these institutions should exist in the first place is not important for this wiki. Lets be blunt for a start, and analyse later (whether we want to partner with them or exterminate them).
