Few things excite me as much as this project: a project dedicated to giving young girls the best start in life. When I saw the poster, it nearly brought tears to my eyes. The future is data, and those that can control, manipulate and work with it will be at the forefront of civilisation. If in doubt, ask Bezos or Zuckerberg. Girls Can Code is a project that is bringing this skill to young Nigerians girls, and every parent worth their salt must look into this.
The Shade of Women Foundation are working to close the gender gap in science and technology through various outreach programs. This year, in commemoration of the International Day of the Girl Child, they are inviting young girls 15 and above to join them as they inspire and furnish young women with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities. 50 free slots available for the first lucky registrants.
If I had something louder than this blog, I’d use it. Lord knows if I could stand on a mountain-top; if I could pause Big Brother Naija halfway through, if I could whisper like an annoying mosquito in the ear of every parent of a young girl, it would be to say: DO THIS FOR YOUR DAUGHTER. Take advantage of this initiative. Do something that she will thank you for in years to come. Time for slate and chalk don pass. Coding is important and Girls Can Code is essential.
