Our own club Captain, Juma Baldeh was selected by UNICEF as one of the change-makers in the Gambia. She talked about HackathonGirls and its objectives, she also spoke about why she is passionate about helping girls in technology or getting girls to study technology especially the technical areas. Juma also mentioned the Challenges she and her team face in running the club, one was that they don’t have all the right resources such as computers to train the girls. The Mozilla club of HackathonGirls uses the American Corner which has few computers for her sessions. “Getting sponsors to help with the club will motivate the girls and encourage more girls to be involved likewise organize workshops and campaigns to sensitize her community ” she said.
