Why code like her?
Increasingly, the face of global poverty is a female one. It is the girl who cannot read and the mother who cannot write her own name. But the face of hope is also female. It is the young woman who teaches her sister how to write her name and the mother who sends her daughters to school. Access to quality education is the best tool we have in the fight against global poverty.
By educating girls and women, they become more productive citizens, contribute more to the development of their communities and take their rightful place as equal members of society. An education empowers girls to become future leaders in their communities, serving as role models and mentors to others girls – this is one of the most powerful catalysts for positive social change we have. A girls voice tells the real story – with the impact on their families and communities being a personal journey of discovery as varied as the girls we support. We believe that sustainability, positive change and durable solutions take time – we are patient.
Code Like Her is a national level fellowship targeted to broaden the tech opportunity for Nepalese girls. It is totally non-profit oriented and is executed solely to strengthen the confidence of tech enthusiast girls and motivate them to move forward in the tech industry.
