On 11 April 2018 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported:
Jennifer Pahlka believes that coding can help deliver a better U.S. government that works to help reformed felons earn an honest living and public servants frustrated by poor technology. Pahlka was in Oxford (UK) -- where Ebay billionaire Jeff Skoll established a centre for social entrepreneurship in 2003 -- to collect an award, one of six Skoll winners this year. After seeing the challenges working in child welfare, she founded San Francisco-based non profit Code for America in 2009 to create user-friendly websites that make it easier to navigate systems to access state benefits or services.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of government, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
