The grant program “Hands on the Future: A Making and Computer Coding Skill-building Program for Women” aims to support the U.S. Embassy’s goal of promoting technology innovation and entrepreneurship for inclusive economic growth and development in India.
The grantee will:
1. Produce a needs assessment report of the making/computer coding ecosystems in New Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, and Mumbai, determining where there are gap areas for free/low-cost making/computer coding skills development training for the target audience;
2. Select near 30 participants in each city, as well as a minimum of one course facilitator per city, develop, and execute a series of 4 intensive classes at American Centers in the 4 cities.
3. Informed by the needs assessment, create a written making/coding curriculum for each city that addresses the highest priority needs.
These 4 initial courses in each city are a means of further honing in on the needs and behaviors of our target audience of young women.
