I had a great time at the Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program. Here is my video recap, and a look inside the backpack I received from Bank of America and Girls Who Code when I completed the program.
What’s in the bag:
“The Emma bracelet is made from 6mm Ghana glass beads with a faceted metal bead from India. It is purposefully assembled by empowered women overcoming trauma and injustice in Charlotte, NC. In Charlotte, NC we serve women overcoming situations such as human trafficking, abuse, addiction, incarceration, generational poverty, and ethnic persecution. Our team teaches these women, whom we refer to as artisans, to make jewelry and other crafts providing them with supplemental income. In addition, we work with our artisans on their personal development through mentoring and goal setting. We help artisans achieve goals around employment, education, stable housing, continued sobriety, financial literacy, ESL, spiritual growth, supportive community, emotional health, and skill development. Local artisans graduate from our program within 3 to 6 months, allowing us to continue to help more women live abundant, purposeful lives.”Fashion & Compassion website
