The opportunity to discover the endless possibilities of technology should be equal to everybody. Regardless of your background you should be able to find out what technology could mean for you. If you want to use it to conquer the world with a company, build solutions to solve the biggest problems in the world, express you creativity, communicate or anything else you can dream of. To make sure everybody gets that opportunity we are distributing The New Girl Code for free to girls who don’t have access to books. We are proud to partner with the below organisations to reach those girls.
Want to contribute and allow us to reach even more girls? Please reach out to us. Do you have an organisation that works with girls in the age 9-15 and you would like to work with us? Please send us an e-mail at email@example.com.

UNICEF SOUTH AFRICA - Technogirl
Although notable strides have been made in the field of gender equality in South Africa, girls remain at a disadvantage when it comes to taking up studies and professions in science, technology, mathematics and engineering. Through a combination of opportunity and legacy, too few girls are engaged in these sectors. To address this deficit, UNICEF, in partnership with the national Department of Education, established the TechnoGirl mentorship programme in 2005. This initiative identifies high school girls between the ages of 15 and 18 who are from disadvantaged communities (rural and urban), and who are doing well academically.
