We are on a mission
We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to bridging the technology gender gap in Tanzania and across sub-Sahara Africa.
At Apps and Girls, we empower girls and young women to create the world they want to live in using technology by giving them skills and a platform to become effective tech-entrepreneurs and tech role models with including quality software and hardware programming skills.
We are extremely proud of our student and mentee Oliver Godliving for being one of the 100 global winners of the Rise for the World Program.
Oliver God Living is a co-founder of Heimo Female, a project with a vision to end period poverty and period stigma by providing education about menstrual hygiene and affordable and high quality period products in academic institutions via their pad vending machines.
Rise is a program that finds brilliant people who need opportunity and supports them for life as they work to serve others. The program starts at age 15-17 and offers a lifetime of benefits including scholarships, mentorship, access to career development opportunities, funding, and more as Global winners work toward solving humanity’s most pressing problems. An initiative of Schmidt Futures and the Rhodes Trust, Rise is the anchor program of a $1 billion commitment from Eric and Wendy Schmidt to find and support global talent.
Special shoutout to her mentor Modesta Joseph for guiding her through this journey!
