One Million Arab Coders Creating better opportunities for thousands of women
Another notable success story is that of Eman Wajdi from Egypt. Working long hours in an office away from her home and children has always been difficult for Wajdi. So she was forced to spend nine years at home to take care of her children while doing various manual and household chores to support her family alongside her husband.
But everything changed after she participated in the ‘One Million Arab Coders’ initiative in 2017. “At that time, I was working during the day on my home project to prepare food and deliver it to customers, and only after putting my children to bed I would start studying late at night,” Wajdi said.
“I really learned a lot from the initiative, as I gained website and mobile application development skills that helped me transform my small business into a project that I manage using a mobile application.”
Wajdi expanded her project to the rest of Egypt, and more than 9,000 requests were submitted from Egyptian women to help her prepare food, in a real-world example of the ability of innovative solutions to change the course of the lives ofthose who initiate them, as well as the lives of the thousands around them.
