You can use this section to search for projects that are either underway or are looking to get support from people in your area. 

You’ll be able to find out what help people are looking for and if you want to get involved then you will be able to contact the project owner or sponsor. Even if you can’t help out yourself you can easily share the projects with people in your own network that might be able to.  It’s also a great way of finding out what’s going on in your area.
