Thousands of jobs are being created in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) industries across Africa. But gender discrimination, lack of access to education and technology means girls are kept out of the workforce and unable to break the cycle of poverty.
Code Clubs are low-cost, sustainable and scaleable safe spaces where girls can build, learn and create through technology, creativity and coding. Designed to empower girls with technology through creativity and learning, Code Clubs will benefit between 600 and 700 females aged five to 24 in Kenya, Uganda and Senegal. The project will expand to three more countries later this year.
