Who are we?

Afro Fem Coders

Afro Fem Coders aims to create a space that gives women a chance to learn programming in a safe and encouraging environment. By empowering young sub-saharan African women to code, we are shaping leaders who will innovate and positively impact people’s lives. Students in our program benefit from weekly coding classes, monthly guest speaker keynotes, mentorship from women pursuing engineering careers in the silicon valley, college application guidance, and more. We approach the classes with a project-based teaching style.
