Our Story

The world has changed! The social walls of deprivation have been pulled down by digital technologies. GirlsCoding is the Calvary matching into the slums, orphanages and other underserved communities to bring young girls into these new realities. 70% of Nigerians live under a dollar a day, we believe we can bridge that poverty gap, by giving each girl a functional I.T skill. We have enlisted the support of small tech companies, NGOs doing similar work and interested individuals to give girls from the most impoverished communities a chance at changing their destiny.

GirlsCoding is an intense program for young girls, age range10-17years, living in underserved communities in Nigeria; to train them in computer skills, robotics, programing using HTML and Java, connect them to female mentors and then connect them to Tech companies on internship. GirlsCoding make use of brain tasking puzzles from code.org and coderdojo to get our girls started and interested in the program.
