Underground TechSheroes Gives Hope for the Future!
In August, our Underground TechSheroes students learned many valuable skills from MS Word in the IT course to Bootstrap in the Coding course. Students also participated in Women’s Empowerment workshops vital to their future success.
Hadia, who would be in 11th grade if not for the ban, says “When this course came to me, I didn't have any hope to live, and it shined like a light on my life, and now I have hope for the future.”
Girls in these programs benefit significantly from the Women’s Empowerment courses. In August, topics included women as leaders, community management, conflict resolution, women’s rights are human rights, and why women must fight and stand together against injustice.
Underground TechSheroes is currently serving 124 students across 3 secret class locations. This model allows girls to create community, expand their horizons, and learn critical skills for their futures.
