Women Training Programs

Code Like a Girl

dLab in collaboration with Vodacom Tanzania are running an extensive 4 – day training programme for girls aged 14-18, to help them engage with the technology industry and encourage them to consider technology as a career path in the future. The initiative has the aim of ending the misconceptions that “STEM is for boys” and create a fun atmosphere that will get girls excited about all the career paths that are available to them. The program intends to help more women and girls feel inspired to get into coding and be more involved in the creation and development of tech. The main goal of the training is to encourage girls to participate in STEM activities.

Smart Girls

Following up the success of Code Like A Girl program, dLab partnered with University of Dar es Salaam and ICT commission of Tanzania to design a program of training young girls especially at community schools on emerging technologies. The program targets schools with less or no digital infrastructure by inviting them at the campus to leverage the college laboratories during practical sessions. The goal is to provide them with hands-on skills


This is the program initiative by dLab that targets young career women who are entrepreneurs or aspire to be entrepreneurs by enhancing their digital skills so as to stay relevant in the field. We also train them on data use skills so that they can analyse market trends to inform their businesses. The program acts as a catalyst for young women to grow their startups towards successful and sustainable businesses.
