iamtheCODE is the first African-led global movement to mobilize government, private sector, philanthropic organizations, and foundations to advance STEAMED (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics,
Entrepreneurship and Design) Education.
By 2030, the iamtheCODE movement will ensure that 1 Million women and girls have equal access to affordable and quality technical, vocational and tertiary education, including university. By doing so, women and girls stand a better chance at obtaining equal opportunities in the job market. They are creating a generation of female digital leaders, in Africa especially.
