Mozilla Club of HackathonGirls is a project of HackathonGirls that seeks to empower young girls in the Gambia ages 8 to 18 years by creating a multidisciplinary and safe space for informal learning and exchange of experiences around digital culture. The aim is to provide participants with the skills they need so they can be informed contributors and creators of digital world.
The Mozilla club of HackathonGirls strives to build and support an equitable and inclusive online world for children especially girls. To do this, we want to challenge the existing gender imbalance that exists and create an online space where we can reach gender equality at scale.
We want to help shift the default to one where women have a strong, equitable role in reading, writing and participating on the web—and, ultimately, help lead the next wave of openness, innovation and opportunity online.
Through Mozilla club of HackathonGirls we aim to help end the gender technology gap and empower women and girls to create innovative solutions to advance equality in the Gambia.
