How we work
teaching ladies to love code
About 13 million females in Africa have the cognitive abilities & capacity to go through our programs and we are serious about exhausting that pool even if it takes us a decade or more. Gitgirl aggregates content to create tech courses and curriculums for women. Our programs are subsidized and discounted to remain affordable and accessible. Our most recent innovative program Code N’ Wine covers two main tech courses: Front-end Development & Data Analytics for the woman who wants to change her life through her career. Career support and Study group support are perks of the program and the payment options are flexible.
Coding camp for adolescent girls
At Gitgirl, we consider the different categories and demographics of females whom we target. Our coding camp called Codebase is a free (yep, free!) two-week summer program for girls 16 – 23 years old. Our outreach involves hosting coding competitions among highschool seniors and college students with amazing prices to be won. Winners are invited for the summer coding camp and are immersed into the world of code. Gitgirl remains a part of their lives even after the program as they’ll get access to more tech courses and projects to continue learning with.
as a social enterprise
Some of the revenue collected from program fees are used for the coding camp and other impact missions to make tech courses more accessible to girls. Our impact is measured by successful transitions of girls and women into tech. Change takes courage and we are spreading like wildfire. Your donations will go a long way to helping us make more impact and reaching our goals.
