First Mozilla Club in the Gambia

How did you club start Mozilla Club? We started as a small group called HackathonGirls and whiles I was searching for online IT activities to teach girls in my club. During my web search i found mozilla teaching activities and through the site i came across leadership opportunities and that was how i applied to be a club captain, which was something very amazing and inspiring after going through Mozilla's site Who are your club main audiences? Girls who are passionate to read, write and participate on the web and basically open to the public.

Mozilla Club was preceded by Juma Baldeh, which was founded in August 2016 with the aim to support, mentor and inspire the enthusiastic girls who wants to read, write and partipate on the web.

The club is planning to start working in collaboration with the University of the Gambia and schools where they wish to start some clubs, with the support of the Mozilla foundation and it's network of awesome staff/volunteers.

The program has had a lot of success so far! As of September 2016, there are 16 active Mozilla learners in the Gambia

The club has 10 to 16 learners, and sessions are supported by 4 to 5 volunteers. They welcome a diverse audience, including adults, young professionals and youth under the age of 18.
