As Executive Director of 7000 Languages, I had the pleasure of working with Hack4Impact UIUC on the development of a mobile application for our organization. This breakthrough mobile application will be the first of its kind, helping speakers of endangered languages create language learning materials using only their mobile phone. The impact of this project allows our organization to serve more communities, better meet our partner’s needs, and empower individuals to revitalize their endangered languages.

From start to finish, the Hack4Impact team was extremely professional and dedicated to ensuring that the final product met our expectations. They were responsive to our needs and provided valuable insights and suggestions throughout the process. They asked thoughtful questions and made excellent suggestions for us on how to prioritize and customize the features of our project. Their technical expertise, attention to detail and passion for the project were evident in the final product, which will be a game-changing application for our field of language revitalization.

More than the professionalism and technical expertise, our Hack4Impact team truly felt dedicated to our project and the mission of our organization. They consistently made it a priority to understand our organization, the communities we serve, and the individualized needs of both parties.

It was an absolute pleasure working with the entire Hack4Impact team. I would highly recommend Hack4Impact UIUC for any non-profit organization that is looking to expand their impact through technology, support young professionals and engage with passionate learners.

How We Work

At Hack4Impact, we develop software for nonprofits to make their work more efficient, effective, and far-reaching. Generally, we set up a call with potential nonprofit partners to learn more about their initiatives and goals. If our goals align, we delve deeper into project specifications, pain points, and user research before confirming the project and matching a development team. We aim to build sustainable products with long-lasting impact for nonprofits and those they are trying to help.
