There is a lack of representation of women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). More importantly, there is a lack of programs introducing coding skills to girls from communities of color. Black Girls CODE and the Latino Startup Alliance are teaming up to empower young girls of color, by introducing them to coding and the transformative power of tech.
It’s simple, our girls love tech and mobile phones. And we all know that devices like mobile phones are not just toys. They can be powerful tools that can help ensure them a bright future. La TechLa sets out to teach 1,000 girls and engage their parents on how and why tech skills matter for our futures.
At present, La TechLa is raising money to help support their 10 city international roll-out of this powerful campaign as they bring tech to nuestras niñas in the United States, Puerto Rico and Mexico.
La TechLa’s goal is $5,000 in 20 days. You can help them by visiting their Indiegogo crowdfunding page and donating today.
