Code in Rose

The creative story below is about how a group that someone is part of takes action to create change for girls and women. It was submitted to the Girl Rising Champions of Change Contest, powered by HP. Being featured on this site does not mean that an individual is a contest finalist. All artwork is the property of the original creator.

In a tech society which is more male-dominated, we want to empower and promote girls, living not only in urban areas but in rural areas too, through building knowledge, skills, and attitude in the field of technology, to fight gender inequality and to tackle inclusion of girls through working together in a sharing community. 

Code in Rose is a community of girls trying to minimize the gender gap in technology. Based in Tirana but working with other communities in Rural areas. Although some changes are difficult to be made. Code in Rose has been a bridge for these young girls to connect with each other and share the passion for technology. But Code in Rose its not a silent community but a recognized community that is working with girls with the mission to make a change. Lately they have been working with the campaign She is We that promotes the voices of Albanian girls in technology. We are trying to change our Albania and make it a better place. Because GIrls CAN.
