OUR VISION AND MISSION
Our vision is to elevate and create opportunities for vulnerable and marginalized girls in Africa, so they learn creatively, grow confidently, get jobs, transform their lives and improve their well-being. We believe that empowering girls through the #iamtheCODE movement will drive the change that must happen in order for this vision to be realized. Through guidance and mentoring they can unlock their potentials, grow in confidence and become the code.
By 2030, the #iamtheCODE movement will ensure that 1 Million girls have equal access to affordable and quality technical, vocational and tertiary education, including university. And we create a generation of women digital leaders in Africa.
