Summary

She Can Code provides training to young Rwandan women 18 -25 years with skills to code, build web design, and applications. While attending the cohort participants develop designs for local businesses and create a path way for securing a job. In order to continue offering girls and women an opportunity in a predominantly male field we must support their efforts. The students are learning coding from Berkeley University Master level students who are consulting for the program.

Challenge

Girls and Women only make up about less than 3% of the STEM field in Rwanda and often lack the proper skills to compete in the field with their male counterparts.

Solution

This project is developing a successful workforce of women in technology that will help them become the future tech engineers to innovate new ideas to help reshape Africa.

Long-Term Impact

This project is a sustainable solution for women to rise out of poverty and enter the tech world by equipping them with technical skills and career mentorship by other women in technology. As the program grows, the long-term impact will be seen by the increased number of women with successful tech-related careers."

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
