Vodafone Ghana has partnered with the Institute of ICT Professionals Ghana (IIPGH) to offer free coding training to girls aged 7 to 18 through its Code-Like-a-Girl program.
The Code-Like-a-Girl program is an annual Vodafone Ghana initiative started to provide free basic knowledge in computer languages and development programs such as HTML, CSS, and GitHub.
The virtual program will run on Saturdays from March 11th to April 1st, 2023. Participants will gain coding skills, work experience, and will be able to create a website by the end of the course.
This initiative is part of Vodafone Ghana’s commitment to using its resources, expertise, and technology to help the youth acquire new skills that will prepare them for the future of work.
The Code-Like-a-Girl program is also expected to increase employment opportunities for females in STEM fields, as they will be equipped with in-demand skills and be better positioned to bridge the technological gender gap.
Vodafone Ghana has previously launched other initiatives such as the Discover Graduate Program, the Female Engineering Scholarship Program (FESSP), and internship opportunities, all designed to equip young people for the job market.
