My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Technovation, Los Angeles, CA, USA
I first volunteered with iridescent in 2017 applying to be a Technovation Regional Ambassador for Northern Uganda. Initially I was a beneficially of the engaging and empowering program as I participated in the challenge for two years. Technovation changed my life in so many ways, I became more confident, more acquainted with Technology and programming. My experience in the program inspired me into my current career path, to be able to inspire more girls through Technovation. I work with Oysters & Pearls - Uganda an organisation that cultivates Technology education in northern Uganda which partners with Iridescent to coordinate the Technovation Challenge in our region.
I have witnessed the impact iridescent makes in girls' lives through the organised program materiel, equipment donations like computers, internet, smart phones for the undeserved communities to also be able to participate and make a change in their lives.
From 65 girls that participated in 2017 to over 100 girls in 2018, we believe that girls are being inspired to dream big, work towards achieving those dreams and to aim at acquiring higher education.
