Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

In today's world and our fast paced technology driven lives, there is very little room for gender inequality. Yet, this is a part of every minute or every day for millions of underprivileged girls in certain parts of the world. The problem, left unaddressed results in child labor and these young lives being taken advantage of by unscrupulous elements. Education creates a sense of self-confidence and gives these young minds the motivation to overcome the hurdles that lay before them in that part of the world. It is critical that girls are self-sufficient.
Our goal is to empower underprivileged girls in developing countries educating them in the use of technology.

Basic computer skills are essential in motivating and advancing these girls forward and opening the door for greater opportunities. We are providing these children computer training classes at various levels and intend to supplement that with English classes as well
We fund these programs through tax-deductible charitable donations, High School Clubs, Fundraising and volunteer support

We currently have a fully equipped classroom that has the capacity to train 3000 children each year. We have a volunteer Board to help us garner the much needed resources and set strategy. We also have both paid and unpaid volunteers in countries where we are programs are in place

As the program grows we are looking to increase the number of children trained each year and to increase the number of programs we offer to children of various ages. Once we establish a strong rhythm with our current program the intention is to spread to other cities and countries in need.

We have an IRS approved non profit.
We have a fully equipped classroom and curriculum delivered by a trained instructor.
We are funded for 2017
