iamtheCODE and The Bennett Foundation
iamtheCODE is the first African-led global movement to mobilize government, private sector, and investors to advance STEAMED (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics, Entrepreneurship, and Design) Education. By 2030, the iamtheCODE movement will ensure that 1 Million women and girls have equal access to affordable and quality technical, vocational and tertiary education, including university. We are creating a generation of female digital leaders, in Africa especially, through Digital Clubs, SDG Hackathons, lesson plans, and mentorship programs.
The last couple of weeks, The Bennett Foundation has been able to partner with iamtheCODE to launch their Academy in Senegal which combines sport and coding. While in Senegal, we were able to meet some amazing groups of young women, that were passionate to share their stories with us. The meetings were intense and emotional, but the girls have dreams and hopes and we are so pleased to be able to help out such an amazing group and organization!
