In honor of #InternationalYouthDay, we’d like to spotlight Linda Kamau, a software developer in Kenya and one of five Students Rebuild Award winners. Linda established AkiraChix, a technical training program for young women from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds in Nairobi. She is using the $10,000 award to offer courses in computer literacy and computer programming taught by teachers with real-world experience running their own businesses. Best of all, the girls who have taken the program have gone on to transfer their knowledge to students at nearby schools.
