We live in the digital age. Without the knowledge and skills of digital technology, many people are left behind, unable to fulfil their potential in life.
The project addresses the problem of the exclusion of girls from the technological development of society in remote areas of Odessa Oblast in Ukraine. IT is one of the most promising economic sectors in Ukraine,
however, only 14.3% of women work in the IT sector. The gender gap is more profound in disadvantaged communities where girls have limited access to quality education in computer science. It leads to even greater financial exclusion of girls living in remote areas, and allows poverty to flourish.
This is what we need backing for.
We are aiming to provide free classes on programming for girls with limited access to quality education in computer science, and with few chances to improve their social position. The money will be used to organise the courses and pay salary for teachers.
