#Girlboss wants to give 14 girls an iPad minis, packed with apps to help them learn how to code. This will make them candidates to be the leaders of the future, “girlbosses” if you will. It’s a nice incentive.
Behind #Girlboss is Codarica and Funded By Me. This is how they explain why this campaign is important.
What if every girl could code and knew how to start a company? What if every girl could get access to the closed world of coding and entrepreneurship? Would she be The Next Big Thing? The next new game changer? Would she be the next #girlboss? Well, we strongly believe that more girls should have the options to learn how to code, to spark their creativity and imagination so that they could eventually turn that into ideas that will change the world.
We want to raise awareness around technology for girls by raising funds to support the little girl bosses around the world with iPads filled with educational content.
We grew up seeing the digital transformation form in front of our eyes, but nobody told us HOW it was happening. That coding is a tool that enables you to build super cool things like a Game Boy or a robot. Today as adults building technical companies, we want to give back to society and empower young girls to get excited about technology, programming and its endless possibilities. We want to demolish existing stereotypes by really showing that programming is the only universal language that allows you to completely express your creativity!
Perks include a thank you on social media, but most of all, this is about giving young girls a shot at learning to code, so give as much as you can, if you believe in the project.
