Our Programs

School Drop Outs Training

Working with local community leaders and women, we  engage young women that have dropped out of school, not employed and are not engaged in any income generating activity through a three months program where the young women are trained in  ICT, Entrepreneurship and Life skills/employ-ability skills. This is aimed at increasing their chances at finding gainful employment or starting a business that is technology enabled.

Code Girls Movement

Through creating clubs , we have three categories   ages 7-12 for Primary school girls, ages 13-18 for Secondary Schools and 19-25 for University students,  the Code Girls movement is aimed at teaching young girls how to be creative, imagine, build and share exciting applications . These applications will include; Mobile, web, desktop applications and robotics.

During the Code Girls trainings, the girls are trained in;  Career guidance,  Programming using languages like Ruby on Rails, Django, Python, PHP among others,  Mobile Application Developing on the Android Platform, window Platform, OS Platform, Web design and Development in using Html, Java, Javascript, CSS, Content Management Systems and also Computer Networking and Security.

Tech Graduates Training

For Youths that have a technological certificate, diploma and/or a degree with basic computing and coding knowledge, they are trained in various languages to improve their programming, networking, hardware repair skills, business skills and life/employ-ability skills. This is targeted at improving their chances of finding a job, while those who would like to create a technology business are taken through a training course for 6 weeks and at the end they are supposed to come up with a project.

They are then invited into the WITU HUB accelerator program where they create a prototype which is tested in the community before its fully developed to get customer feedback, with business development and mentoring, they create a viable product. After the two months at the WITU HUB, they are incubated at Uganda’s first tech hub Hive Colab for a period of one year to build their business.
