Girls Who Code has one mission: To create gender parity in the computer science and technology workforce. Since our founding in 2012, Girls Who Code has developed a new model of computer science education designed to inspire, educate, and equip girls with the skills to succeed in both academic and professional careers in technology.
CoderDojo is a volunteer led, global movement of free coding clubs for young people. This project is a global initiative to assist anyone wishing to start a free coding club in their area. Dojos operate from anywhere between 20 and 140 children on a weekly/bi-weekly/monthly basis. To ensure our volunteers are as well equipped as possible we offer support both one to one and in groups, by creating & sharing open source content. We currently impact over 40,000 young people worldwide.
This project will give middle school students from low-income communities access to the inspiring learning experiences they deserve in science, technology, engineering and math subjects. Students will work with mentors from tech companies, including Google, in CA, MA, NY, & NC, in afternoon "apprenticeship" classes to build critical academic skills and raise school and career aspirations.
As per the Annual Survey of Education Report (ASER) survey, India has made impressive progress in school enrollments and the focus is to improve quality. Goonj has found that rural students lack basic supplies (uniforms, pencil, books, a bag etc) while urban students have the same in abundance. This recycling, environment-friendly effort sensitizes and motivates urban students to donate their reusable school material, and acts as the carrot to get village children to school.
