Teaching girls in the slums to use technology to advocate, connect and increase awareness of key issues affecting them will constantly help change their well-being for better. It will also inspire, educate and equip a girl child in a slum community with the computer skills.
Achievers Ghana Coding program believes to close the gender gap in technology in the country by giving computer skills to girls in the slums. We have to inspire a slum girl to pursue computer science.
Our vision is to reach gender parity in computer fields. We believe this is paramount to ensure the economic prosperity of slum girls, families and communities across the slums in the country and to equip citizens with the 21st century tools for innovation and social change. More girls exposed to computer science at a younger age will lead to more women working in the technology and engineering fields.
Achievers Ghana Coding program is making an impact in the slums. The program is attracting more individuals and organizations to witness the wonderful things girls are making in the Ghana slums. This week visitors are Mark Naftalin and his lady colleague. They are freelance journalist and usually report to international media. It was interesting and educative as the girls learn how to blog this week. We need your kind support to make this program a success. Donate now!!
