CODE GIRLS LEVEL UP

The University Code Girls movement is aimed at training industry relevant tech and employability skills to prepare them for the job market in Uganda. Creating our curriculum after consulting with the local tech industry, we teach young women practical, relevant and employable skills to help them qualify for available tech jobs in the market or create their own tech start ups.  We want to increase the number of young women that enter into the tech industry after graduating from higher education institutions.

In addition to the technical skills that the ladies acquire,we offer Career guidance, mentorship, Internship connections, exposure to other short training programs and networking with people already practicing in the field.
