Only do projects for free that are for the greater good. Check out democracylab or Code for America. As a bonus, socially conscious projects are bonus points when you're looking for paid work. It's a win-win and you're not being guilted into helping some 'entrepreneur' look good.

I never thought of things from that perspective. Very interesting.

I'm from Nairobi, Kenya. I've found an alternative to code for America for my region, github.com/CodeForAfrica . This is a whole new and interesting way of looking at things.

Thanks!!

That's really cool! I haven't seen Code for Africa before, I'll make sure to spread that link as well. Good luck!
