Project: Girls Hackathon for Social Change & Development
The goal of Elizabeth’s project is to improve female participation and involvement in computer science by enabling women, and by teaching young girls to think creatively and solve problems systematically. This will be done through training girls to develop android applications that are targeted towards social change and development in Malawi. The project will embrace a proportion of the women and girls that are in schools, colleges, and who are unemployed, and will motivate them to take on ICT as a career. The project intends to identify and nurture women and girls with skills in technology and software development, and aims to equip the participants with the necessary skills for future development.
