“We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back”
On the occasion of #InternationalDayForTheGirlChild, we are happy to recognize & reiterate our commitment to achieving #GenderEquality through education. EPAM in partnership with Nirmaan, has been providing access to high quality computing education for children across India through #EPAMeKidsProgram. Over the last three-years, 8,550+ high school students from underrepresented communities have spent 12,800+ hours in learning about computers & coding – out of which, 48% are girls!
“..I am feeling very happy to learn computers. I learnt scratch programming advanced level with the help of Anjali madam from EPAM. I also learned MS office tools like Word, Excel, PowerPoint Presentation and I participated in a Human Design thinking session. I am very thankful to Nirmaan and EPAM for giving me a good opportunity to learn..” said Akshaya, participant of eKids program.
Empowering women and girls and promoting gender equality is crucial to accelerating sustainable development.
