Paying it forward and giving hope can come in different forms and the team at Made by Fire have just raised the bar. Say hello to our Soul Tech program. Through this cool initiative, we are determined to teach 90 young girls and boys how to code and create their own digital product.
What’s on the anvil
Introduce technology to these kids in a fun and interactive manner.
Provide them with the right infrastructure to learn technology – desks, chairs, computers, tech kits and software.
Weekly sessions from the members of the Women in Tech team on how to code in PHP, Python, JAVA and Swift.
Mentoring and support to conceptualise a new digital product idea with a commercial proposition.
Help the kids to design, develop and launch this product.
We’re going to digitally transform their lives by giving them the right instruction and infrastructure to learn, develop and finally build a product that can be launched in the market. We hope this digital product will give them a bright and economically stable future, while also enabling them to change more lives as they grow up. Our li’l tornado of change is ripping apart stereotypes, pretences, hypocrisy and negativity, and leaving inspiration, hope, knowledge and positivity in its wake.
