Young children under the age of fifteen make up one-third of the Libyan population, and today these children face seemingly insurmountable odds at securing a bright future. Thus, the need to engage Libya’s children in projects that rehabilitate and better their mental condition is now more urgent than ever.
49.56 % of the Libyan population is female, in the Libyan culture, most women depend on the male figure of the family for financial support, which is not valid (Practical) nowadays, especially of what resulted from the war, where a lot of young men have died or lost their limps and became unable to gain/earn their own living. It’s not practical to have the men as the only bread winner.
In today’s business environment, computational thinking skills are not only beneficial to careers in virtually every sector, but are essential to the growth and success of any public or private enterprise. To initiate and establish such skills among the Libyan populace, will have sustainable results that will help our youth invest and build their country in the future.
Women who can’t leave their home and go to work regularly due to different reason such as the war, the Sewerage from Libya’s bad infrastructure, or because they are from conservative families, have the opportunity to work from home now, being a coder, programmer,…etc. Doesn’t require going to the office and working fixed hours, which is a great solution for moms who can’t leave their children at home and need flexible working hours.
Technology is a growing field, and our projects aims to change the myth that Tech is only dominated by men by supporting and encourage women to take part and participate in the Tech World, to help women to be proactive.
