Bright young people in locations like the Gaza strip, Venezuela, Egypt, and many other non-standard locations with legal and technical barriers to participation, have limited economic opportunities despite their talents and abilities.
Software, remote coding, in particular is an opportunity for individuals to make a healthy wage remotely, but most companies will not hire outside standard locations, or will not be willing to work with a coder whose Internet is sometimes unreliable.
Volunteers will contact HR depts of companies, organizations and NGOs - in particular those who have a purpose of uplifting economies of these regions - and find out what can be done to open up remote job opportunities for coders and groups in these areas. If we can troubleshoot the problems and establish success stories, we can increase the opportunities for people. We will also support and spread the word about the existing mentoring and teaching tools online, and connect people to resources as needed. (A huge amount of 'learning code' resources already exist, and many young people do take advantage of them, but not everyone sees it as a possibility so spreading the word is also helpful.)
(We are already in touch with several coders, and can reach out to more)
Other types of remote work could be included as well, the purpose is just to increase opportunities for people globally in areas where it is currently difficult to find.

We created civ.works as a platform for all of us to work together to overcome the corrupting influence of money in politics. Together we can address bad policy, legislation and to hold all of our elected officials accountable. For democracy to work -our government must represent "We the People". civ.works: Together. We can.
civ.works is a privacy protected social platform built for meaningful civic action.
The concept of civ.works is to finally provide a societal machine to stand up against something created nearly 50 years ago -and begin the process of empowering citizens again. We are building a platform together -against an incredibly mature and well-funded machine. Your volunteer efforts will be helping us collectively build something powerful and important.
