What is a Hackathon?
Initially started as a computer programming event (Hack + Marathon), Hackathon now evolves into an event where teams figure out a solution for a social issue in the community.

Then how is Faithathon different from a normal hackathon?
Ours is a faith-based hackathon meaning that the theme will be related to social issues faced by a Muslim Community so teams need to come up with an idea and proposal related to that. The theme and topic will be revealed during the competition day itself.

Examples of social issues:
•Theme: Green Living. Topic “How can Muslim organisations adopt green practices?”
oSo participants need to list out creative ways
organisations can be more environmental-friendly
•Theme: Entrepreneurship. Topic “What kind of start-ups will benefit/meet the needs of the Muslim Community today?”

We will ask teams to join our 3-hours training workshop on Sat, 11th August to learn from various trainers
to draw inspiration for the competition.

Teams will then participate in a whole day competition on Sat, 18th August from 9am to 6pm
(Hackathon usually last for 24 – 48 hours so thank us for making it very short!)
