Girls in ICT day is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in April every year. At Share we believe that Education and Employment are the best antidote against human trafficking. Human trafficking also referred to as Modern Day Slavery is one of the fastest growing criminal industries. What better way to combat modern day slavery by promoting technology career opportunities for girls and women in the world’s fastest growing (fairwork) sector.
There are an estimated 2 million jobs available in the information and communication and technology sector. Girls and young women who learn coding and apps development will not only be well-placed for a successful career in the ICT sector, but ICT skills are rapidly becoming a strong advantage for students in just about any other field they might choose to pursue.
We are happy to announce the launch of Share Academy. With some help of our friends at ABN AMRO we were able to get laptops and full paid scholarships for our first group of up and coming coders.
