The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) applies the principles of open source and open data sharing for humanitarian response and economic development. HOTs provides free, up-to-date maps are a critical resource when relief organizations are responding to disasters or political crises. This is a great initiative started back in 2010. I have chosen this project because of two major reasons, first being the organization itself and the motive behind the project which I found very interesting and important to work on, secondly the technology stack the project is using Javascript/NodeJS for APIs and React for the frontend.
