Summary

This project will teach 100 girls from disadvantaged backgrounds how to code, build robots, and how to use science and technology to solve problems in their communities. Educated girls with practical technical skills are empowered to access good paying jobs and also learn how to use science and technology to innovate and overcome challenges.

Challenge

Girls in underserved communities often lack access to education, healthcare, social services, and to well-paying jobs. Those from poor and low-income families live in slums and communities that lack electricity, water and sanitation, good schools, roads, and health services. By training girls in science and technology, we empower them to escape poverty. We enable them to access high-wage jobs and we equip them with the knowledge required to transform them into change agents in their communities.

Solution

It will teach relevant skills that enable girls to earn incomes and provide for themselves and their families. Moreover, through the practical and hands-on activities, girls learn how to create and build. For instance, we have taught girls how to use scrap materials to build Renewable Energy prototypes, including solar ovens and concentrated solar power generators. Girls also learn to build useful apps. Our target group will be motivated to stay in school, further their education, and work.

Long-Term Impact

100 girls learning to code and build robots will increase their income generation potential, which directly improves their quality of life, as well as those of their families (estimated at over 1,000 people in total). Educated girls also avoid child marriage and have fewer, healthier children. Also, we teach the girls to solve problems, thereby creating an environment that fosters innovation. Various prototypes to solve challenges in education, healthcare, and water and sanitation will be built.
