Datagirltech.com is that one woman army that can push the African woman to any length when it comes to her tech capacity. However, “alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”.
Datagirl will be partnering with shecodes foundation to teach girls how to code for a period of 6 months. This is to provide women in developing countries with the opportunity to learn how to code for free. Statistics show that “Women currently hold 25% of coding jobs and earn 30% less money than men.
In most developing countries, more than 65% of women don’t have bank accounts and cannot afford to invest in their education”. There is therefore a dire need to lift women out of this derogatory situation like teaching them how to code. The good news is, this program is exclusively FREE.
All you need is a laptop and a good Internet connection. For more information on how to be part of this training program, get to shecodesfoundation.org and apply.
