Many things are happening with the boys and girls that started this journey through technology.
On April 21, we had our Demo Day, an event to show the skills developed by 20 girls who are now Junior Frontend developers. Three of them are now employed by companies and they have the opportunity to improve their living conditions. We are looking for new opportunities for the rest of this group. Thanks to be part of this process!
Nowadays, 24 youths are part of Geek Academy, they are learning about front-end concepts, design thinking, and 21st-century skills. They are developing abilities related to these topics and preparing themselves for employment.
We as Makaia expect that the new abilities acquired during the courses will fit the criteria of the technology sector and we can assure their employment. Access to new information on programming languages will improve their skills and increase the chances of employability. Also, it will help guarantee better living conditions.
