Project Report | May 1, 2019
A world of possibilities for our girls!

By Zina Thompkins | Development Associate

Girls Who Code stands committed to empowering girls from all backgrounds to gain skills and careers in tech.

Our Black and Latina alumni are entering computer science fields at 16X the national average and 50% of girls we serve come from underrepresented communities.

We teach motivated girls the skills they need to thrive in tech careers—while also creating a supportive community. That community includes donors like you and partners who make our work possible. Please affirm your commitment to our girls and to diversity in tech by making a donation today!

Your support is life-changing for students like KaYesu Machayo. She had a vision to bring solar homes to developing countries, but knew she needed to learn tech first.

“I knew it was my purpose to serve others through technology,” she explained. “But my school did not offer any computer science or technology classes.”

A world of possibilities opened for KaYesu after enrolling in our free Summer Immersion Program. “We met computer programmers…and I was inspired to apply to college to make my dreams of working in tech a reality,” KaYesu said.

She’s one of the more than 185,000 girls whose lives have been impacted by Girls Who Code. And as we continue to launch new initiatives to support girls in college and outside the US, we hope you will remain a member of our community with a gift today.

We are on track to achieve gender parity in tech by 2027—and we will do so while celebrating the diversity of each girl we serve. Thank you so much for your support.

Best wishes,

Girls Who Code
