A network of women that supports itself
We are building highly competitive young women with 21st- century skills in Technology and moving them out of the vicious cycle of low-skills, low productivity, and low-wage employment. codeHive program is designed to build women tech leaders. Unlike every other coding Bootcamp, the program employs a holistic approach towards building hands-on technical skills and increasing the young women’s agency, the key recipe towards building a successful network of women who are building solutions for the problems in their communities.
AkiraChix believes in opening the world of technology to young minds allowing them to spark a curiosity that may one day pursue careers in information technology.
We help women access opportunities to connect learn and collaborate in IT thus building a community of practice..
AkiraChix is a trailblazer enabling women access opportunities to connect, learn and collaborate in IT as we continue to build a community of practice. One of the ways we work towards achieving this goal is by hosting our Annual Africa Women in Tech conference (AWTC) which attracts hundreds of women and girls from diverse spectrums in Africa.
GGfest ( Geek Girl Festival) is an all day event for highschoolers and university students. We believe that girls can take on some of the biggest challenges and problems our planet faces and participate in solving them when introduced to tech. Girls learn how program and solve problems as they participate in interactive computational-thinking activities in a day which in turn inspires them to venture into technology
Codefest is Kenya's largest all-female hackathon and constitutes an open and supportive environment for beginners or experienced hackers alike. We aim to connect, inspire women, and help in further education and technological career.
