Renan’s Tech Access Program

TechGirl 2018: Renan  is 16 years old and lives in Gaza. After watching a Youtube video by Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg on the importance of coding, Renan resolved to learn more.  Since her summer 2018 TechGirls experience, she has been involved in multiple coding programs, including the Patel Group Foundation’s Code For Palestine and at Gaza Sky Geeks, where she worked on mobile app development for community improvement. Renan has created a Tech Access Program  for girls between the ages of 14 and 17 so that her peers interested in coding or STEM related fields can discuss the importance of technology, learn how to access coding tutorials, and get advice from programming teachers.
