Makersloft Kolkata joining hands with differnet kinds of makers from other parts of the world. Meghna Bhutoria leading the way. It was indeed a good discussion.

The visitors at MakersLoft are a part of an organisation called Geeks Without Bounds that help accelerate  humanitarian projects to bring good intentions to a state of deployment. Accelerators are about making intent match application by exposing a developer with good intentions to the field and/or to mentors who understand the field, which leads to more useful tools.

They focus on crowd sourcing, crisis mappinghackathons, communication technologies to connect developers with an expanded and ever more able global community of responders who can aid in tool learning, maintenance, and further development for global response awareness and affected populations.
