Empowering community through technology

Founded by a team of three Palestinian Technologists, Vecbox aims to build a community that will take concepts of technology for social good and convert them from theory to actual practice. We will provide access to knowledge and tools by offering a space that will enable both the tech community and individuals interested in tech solutions to engage, learn and build for change. To achieve the objectives set out by the team, VecBox will work on the creation of a Hackerspace and a knowledge hub with a set of curricula and workshops focusing on technology and community.
