Humanitarian Open Source Software
The Sahana Disaster Management system is not the only humanitarian Open Source Software (OSS) project. There is also the OpenMRS medical record system and the Humanitarian FOSS Project. Many of such projects take part in the Google Summer of Code where volunteers work intensively on the projects. They also involve university software engineering students encouraged by their institutions to gain experience in teamwork through the projects.
