My story

[p]This year for #GivingTuesday the theme is #GiveBack2020 [/p][p]At ETC we have been working hard during this Covid-19 pandemic to ensure our Code Queen program continued so that women in Uganda could gain the in-demand skills needed to secure employment, made even more important during these times. With nearly 100 women already trained and linked, we want to ensure that in 2021 we continue to help women in Uganda as the pandemic continues.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Our goal is to train 500 women in 2021, will you help us do that?[/p][p][br][/p][p]An investment of $365 trains a woman in our Code Queen project for 8-weeks and this can increase her earning potential x10! [/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/A3dnYTOK8Zg?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p][p]Why Tech and Why Women?[/p][p]According to UNAC, girls and women spend 90% of their earned income on their families compared to men who only spend 30-40% and children of educated mothers are 50% more likely to attend school. [/p][p]In Uganda female unemployment is nearly double that of males (Uganda Bureau of Statistics, 2017).[/p][p]Girls are 5 times less likely to consider a career in technology versus boys. Less than 20% females attend ICT events such as hackathons, networking seminars or conferences (Plan International)[/p][p]The gig economy and the platform economy generated 7.1% of GDP or US$110 billion in Sub-Saharan Africa in 2017 (GSMA).[/p][p]3 in 4 people in Sub-Saharan Africa cannot access the internet (GSMA) and yet Around 20 million people1 have a mobile subscription in Uganda, representing 44% of the population.[/p][p]£5 could buy data so that a women can continue learning with Code Queen[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
