The Society Of Women Coders (SOWCoders) is a group led by women working in technology.
Our mission is to encourage young girls from developing nations to opt for careers in STEM ( Science,Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) by conducting free coding & information camps for them in their country.
Part of our mission is to change the existing norms and mindsets that limit women to the usual career paths. We want to help them understand the importance of
becoming financially independent
and how a career in technology can empower them to do the same and more.
We also work on building relationships and creating a global network by assigning
sister mentors to the girls that participate in our camps. The sisterhood helps them learn about the different fields of technology, make opportunities available to them and guide them in their respective careers.
