Take a look at what RHoK is and what it stands for here.

This is a group for anyone interested in using their coding, design and development, programming, business analysis, project management or software engineering skills to make the world a better place. Join us on the first weekends of June and December as we take part in the global RHoK initiative of Hacking for Humanity! RHoK was started in 2009 by Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, NASA and The World Bank to bring computer types together with experts in things like natural disasters and climate change. For two weekends a year we join in with the RHoK Global hackathons to build apps and software that can actually help to save lives.  In between those two weekends, we'll also be running regular meet-ups so people can come along and continue with the progress started at the global hackathons, or just find out more about what RHoK is about.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
