As the president of CCFEH (Haiti Women’s Chamber of Commerce) I had the opportunity to work with this nonprofit, the ladies are very professional, they came to work with our young girls to learn about coding. So I strongly recommend SOCODERS for other projects in different areas of the world.

As an intern for SOWCoders, I had a wonderful experience! Kavya and Fara exuded kindness and guidance. Their support strengthened the work I did for the upcoming coding camps. With my newfound confidence, I feel eager to learn whatever comes my way.
Their combination of entrepreneurship and coding is extremely helpful to women in STEM. I will definitely try to continue my work with them. Anyone who is interested should support SOWCoders in their mission to empower women and make a direct impact.

I had the privilege of being one of SOWCoders' first interns and I had an amazing experience. As an intern, I was able to help them make a curriculum for their upcoming coding camp. I was really excited because I felt like I could make an impact on the girls in their camps. The co-founders of this company are so passionate about helping girls in realizing their potential. They not only teach code, but also encourage the girls to become financially independent with their own abilities. Their mission and work sends such an empowering message to girls around the world. I hope to continue helping SOWcoders even after the internship. I encourage anyone who interested in their mission to support them and make an impact in the world.

Society of Women Coders is founded and supported by amazing women who are passionate about bettering the world and making an impact. They see a world where women in developing countries are supported and empowered and serve their community and continue the giving cycle. It brings great joy to my heart to see women of all ages and backgrounds shaping their world at the local to global level to improve the quality of life for all. I recommend that you reach out and find how your passion can add to the amazing mission that Society of Women Coders supports.

I had the privilege and the honor to share my experience as a professional woman in ICT with the girls at the camp. The interaction was very rich and positive. Now, I am mentoring one of the girls that attended this camp. It's a very good experience and an opportunity to give back to my community and particularly the young ladies in my country.

As the Vice-president of Haiti Femmes & TIC, I work in collaboration with the founder of Sowcoders. They are empathy, very professional. They give a chance to the young girls for learning STEM and to involve in the community. They led a coding bootcamp in Haiti for young girls, the presentations and the workshops was the high quality. The rarity of this type of program in ICT for young girls enhances the impact of the work done by SOWCODERS in the community. I recommend sowcoders for others projects.

Society of women coders is run by a very passionate team of women engineers whose primary goal is the uplifting fellow women by teaching technology and providing resources. I had a chance to volunteer for them at Boston University at the SheHacks event. The team is very professional, persistent and inspiring. I enjoyed my experience with them and am excited about continuing to volunteer for them in their future initiatives. I recommend them to anyone who associates with the cause.

I was fortunate enough to volunteer with them for their fundraiser to raise funds for the Haiti Sow Coders camp. They are very professional and passionate about their work and stand by their mission to help girls across by teaching them to code and also giving them an appoortunity to grow and advance in different sectors in Information technology. I am confident in this organization and also can’t wait to see the amount of lives that will be changed for the better !

I am working closely with this non-profit and have developed their website. It feels awesome being part of the work which is being done for the greater good of society. These guys are doing amazing job by providing opportunities to the girls in STEM. SOWCoders' Haiti camp was a great success. The best part is the continuous support provided by this organization to the girls even after the camp through sister mentorship program.

I have been closely following Society of Women coders for the past few months and have been a part of it since the last month. I really like the idea of how we are trying to technologically empower girls which will build up a good career for them and they can live their lives independently. I have organized a fundraiser to raise funds for the upcoming event and I encourage everyone to please have a look at the work we do and help us in all possible way!!

I volunteered with SOWCoders in Boston University. It is a small yet professional organization. I volunteered by promoting the organization at SheHacks and seeking mentors for the Sister/Mentor program. All the potential mentors I interacted with were very excited to be participating in something so meaningful. The volunteering experience was great. I would recommend everyone to get involved in some way with SOW Coders.

I witnessed the Bootcamp led by Society of Women Coders in Haiti first hand as a member of the direction staff of ESIH, the Bootcamp venue. The formation material, presentations, and workshops; the high-profile keynote speakers with inspiring careers and achievements; and the enthusiasm of the attendees testify to the high quality of the work done.
I would like to point out that the rarity of this type of formation program in tech for women in Haiti enhances the usefulness and impact of the work done by SWC.

As the hosting institution for this training (I am the director of the institution), we were very pleased to witness the quality of the work done. The learning participants (some of them being our female students) enjoyed the training very much, the professionalism and the patience of the trainers and the project oriented content as well. This is a much needed initiative that has the power to quickly and drastically increase the employability of the participating women in Haiti in particular and in developing countries in general.

Absolutely love this non profit and their motto. It is an ingenious idea to help these girls on their home turfs, help develop interest in coding AND promote pursuing STEM majors! Keep up the good work :D
