This year is promising a lot. We are in huge preparations to welcome International Day of Girls in ICT on the fourth of Thursday of April.
As we are approaching to this week, we have organized several workshops during the day in cooperation with the experts from the world. In that manner, Microsoft has offered to bring a partner from Slovenia, an expert in ICT. She will come to Sarajevo where we will gather girls and held the workshop.
It is planned to gather more than 20 girls to talk about how to make success in the ICT sector. The expert will prepare her own step by step of how the ICT sector functions from her perspective and try to explain why girls and women are more suitable and great expert in this area.
Other theme we want to cover this year is violence. Therefore, the second part of our this year's event will be on how to connect technology in violence prevention. The workshop will be held with the expert on how to use technology in order to make apps and software in innovative way to prevent violence since the new generation of youth is using the tecnology in closer way than ever. taking in mind that cyber bullying is nowadays in growth, especially in Bosnia and Herzegovina, this theme will cover and spark the girls to think about innovative solutions for the prevention.
We encourage you to stay with us as we are in final preparations and will report back to you as soon as possible.
Thanks for everything and we hope you like our small but strong initiative focusing on GIRLS POWER!
We have made the impact for 5 years in a row and we will maintain it the future.
December was really awesome, since last period was dedicated to preparations of the well-known Hour of Code event in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
This year it was more than 130 young peeps involved only through this project. How come? We have decided to involve schools directly to the event and show the awesomeness of ICT on work. Organization of this 5-day event was along with schools from rural areas in Canton Sarajevo.
The principle was that we serve education to youth regarding general professional orientation through games and coding. Two trainers were involved to deliver this special tasks to 80 girls and 50+ boy in these 5 days strengthening the importance of involving into ICT sector and starting discovering talents within it. Each day, two schools have come to SMART RC premises and started educational coding with the trainers.
Schools are sending us daily photos and videos from their coding classes and we publish them on our well-known Facebook page and instagram in the manner to spread the positive changes happening through Bosnia and Herzegovina.
