Girls Can Code

A girl is who and what she wants to be

Coco Chanel

Girls Can Code initiative is focused on supporting and encouraging girls to explore technology, through a series of real-life projects, themed workshops, coding clubs, leadership classes, work opportunities as well as scholarships for tech boot camps.

Everything starts with a mission ...

Girls are curious, capable and creative.

Every girl deserves to take part in directing and creating technology which is shaping our world.
 
Our goal is to close the gender gap which currently looms over both the tech industry and engineering universities, and to empower girls to fulfill their potential with an understanding of our digital world desire to learn.

Girls Can Code mission is to provide nurturing and supporting environment where girls can explore different opportunities in the digital world by working closely with inspiring university students and industry professionals on real-life projects.

Our approach provides girls with opportunities to shape tomorrow's digital world by working on meaningful impact projects worldwide, while learning important digital skills.
