Empower Women, Prosper Africa
Women account for fewer than 20% of ICT specialists in developing economies and has been estimated that, from 2015, 90% of formal employment across all sectors will require ICT skills.
Tech4her Africa empowers, connects and supports the next generation of women leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) from across 7 countries in Africa and Africans in Diaspora by providing a gender friendly space to learn, access mentors and opportunities needed to advance their careers, pursue their dreams, and inspire women and girls in their communities.
Girls Slay Code Academy
Our drive is to launch the next 10,000 female developers in Africa by 2025. Since GSC’s launch in 2017, the girls of GirlsSlayCode have eagerly jumped into programming. Have a look at what we’ve done to support girls in STEEM and register for upcoming classes!
We host free code bootcamps in partnership with the American Corner-CCHUB monthly. Graduates of our academy become members of the GSC Alumni network- Her Code Network (https://hcn.tech4herafrica.com) and have access to follow-up training, meetups, resources, mentoring, job placements etc. Learn more.
Coding should be elementary and infact everywhere. But today, many schools across the nation are not teaching their students an essential, creative and collaborative literacy- the ability to code.
Code Avengers empowers all elementary students by immersing them in practical and imaginative curricula that extends beyond coding. Our professional development initiatives give students the access to important 21st century skills.
Code Avengers also trains teachers to empower their students as they become creators, collaborators, communicators, logical thinkers and real-world problem solvers. Our professional development facilitators prepare teachers to become confident and effective mentors by teaching computer science and computational thinking concepts, sharing pedagogical content knowledge and supporting professional learning communities.
CODE & COFFEE
Code & Coffee is another way for women to get more experience in a supportive and collaborative environment.One of the big benefits is the motivation women get to continue coding. It is hard learning to code on your own and half the battle is consistently putting aside time to work on projects. The events attract a wide array of participants, from professional programmers to folks experimenting in their spare time.
This is an opportunity for our Alumni members (those who have undergone our Academy) can meetup to collaborate on projects and network with other high rising females. In July 2018, Our girls won the AngelHack.com social impact award for Africa and will be pitching at the Global Demo, Silicon Valley. Learn More…
