Code for GovTech

Code for GovTech (C4GT) is an ecosystem initiative to build an open-source community of contributors, mentors and organizations around Digital Public Goods (DPG), Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI) and Tech for Good products – innovations that are shaping the technological revolution globally to drive the mission of DPG / DPI in the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

C4GT conducts a Dedicated Mentoring Program (DMP) annually wherein select contributors (students or working professionals) work on open-source projects in the DPG / DPI / Tech for Good domain with 1:1 mentorship from domain experts. It is a 3-month long coding program offering a generous stipend to the contributor at the end of the program. The Dedicated Mentoring Program 2023 saw participation from 20+ organizations, listing 100+ problem statements spanning across 38 different open-source products.

Beyond this, we have a community of 18,000+ (and counting) contributors on our Discord channel, working on open-source products. In 2023, we also started setting up Code for GovTech offices to build ground-up, decentralized communities of contributors. Currently, we are present across 18 colleges in India, including IITs, IIITs and NITs.
