social issue). We also include information sessions on various careers in STEM, digital literacy
and invite Women In Tech Speakers to motivate and inspire the girls during these sessions.

Gracy Gurung, Bhutan
My name is Gracy Gurung from Bhutan and I am one of the lucky ones that got the chance to attend the coding classes.I have attended several trainings before but I can't recall any of them having such a strong impact. You have done a wonderful job and I appreciate your efforts. I will surely recommend this training to all my colleagues and friends. I, myself, would love to attend future training organized or featured by you.
Mentorship sessions helped us to interact with our mentors with technical problems.My self-confidence and speaking in public is geared up with the help of this camp. I have learnt a lot about the CS topics I want to pursue in the future .
The camp was just exciting I learnt a lot of coding in such a short period and I plan to apply it in any aspect!,EVERYONE IS WELCOMING AND LOVELY I JUST WANT TO WORK WITH EVERYONE HERE AGAIN ,I REALLY DO!
