Google offers the RISE Awards to support organizations around the world working hard to inspire the next generation of Computer Scientists – especially those that reach girls, underrepresented minorities, and students who face socio-economic barriers.
In 2012, we won a Google RISE grant that greatly helped launch our activities. We carried out our first training camp at Nabisunsa Girls schools and were able to purchase quite a bit of resources, which we still use to this day.
