What Are Coding Clubs
In Coding Clubs we conduct weekly coding sessions for girls in secondary schools across Tanzania to help them develop their own projects and succeed in their careers creating a network of young female digital enthusiasts, innovators and champions driving change in their respective communities.
Tech-Entrepreneurship training to nurture students’ exceptional talents and skills, students are guided on how to use their coding skills gained in the coding sessions to create solutions for real-world problems in their communities.
Mentorship sessions prove necessary coaching and assistance for students to implement their own ideas from ideation to prototyping and concretely start their own enterprises.
Selected ideas from the students are incubated for several months and during this incubation period, the students are provided with the necessary tools, networks, materials, and resources to ensure the sustainability of their projects.
Empowering secondary school girls with the skills, tools, self-esteem, and competitive edge to become effective leaders and drive change in their communities using technology by creating an accessible learning space for students to create innovations both offline and online.
Schools with computer infrastructure adopt the Tech-preneurship curriculum (Coding, innovation, and entrepreneurship + Design thinking) and at the end of the year, they pitch or exhibit their tech-driven businesses or innovations during the Girls Summit.
