We will be taking part in this year's Hacktoberfest London 2019 where project owners get to invite contributors to join and get involved by giving great ideas, help in bug fixes and contribution towards documentations, to help eliminate project blockers. Here is a link to Ushahidi’s Hacktoberfest issues.
