GirlScript in Nepal: What can we expect?
Launched three years ago, the community has been teaching students various educational knowledge and skills through online and offline systems.
Similarly, in Nepal, the community also aims to provide similar workshops and skills related to the field. Thes workshops will especially focus on new students interested in development, programming, and coding. Girls Script has been conducting workshops such as Summer of Code and Hackathon in India. So, now we can also be expecting similar to Nepal as well.
In conversation with the country head, Mr. Bhusal has informed that a female country assistant head will be selected. He also said that there are plans to set up campus chapters and clubs at the college level if the community can do well.
Moreover, he added that there is also going to be a series of workshops organized by the community which contains both advanced and basic level courses. This class of workshop is especially focused on emerging leaders who like to start their careers in programming, Python, web, and so on.
These sessions and workshops will help the youth to become proficient in the fields of development, coding, and programming. More to that, he also claims that Girls script is especially targeted at women. Its main objective will be to keep the number of men low and the number of women high.
So, we can conclude by saying Girlscript Nepal will be a source to influence and support women in the field. With the phenomenal initiative, this chapter will write many amazing stories for all those who are willing to make a change.
