  221. <p>A Madloba website consists of a map-based website that can be used to find what your neighbours have to give away. Once set up on a server, a Madloba website focuses on one city at a time, encouraging people from this city to reuse and recycle objects of all kind within their community.</p>
  222. <p>I worked with <a href="" target="_blank">MAC Georgia</a> to customize an implementation of Madloba for them, as they needed a tool to locate services for children with disabilities in Georgia.</p>

By teaching the basics of programming, we wanted to show how programming could help them in their professional activities.</p>
