MISSION: G-hackademy is a not for profit making initiative to inspire, educate, and equip girls form IT background with the computing skills so that they can fit in the industry.
VISION: G-HackAdemy’s vision is to reach gender parity in computing fields. Female have made up a small minority of programmers for many years. When we are in minority, it is common that we will feel like we don’t belong to that sector and to be susceptible to stereotype threat. Our goal is also to eliminate the negative effects of being in a minority that female programmer have to deal with in most of the rest of the world.
Application for first batch has been closed, and we are running first batch of G-Hackademy. Stay connected with us to apply for second batch.

How does anyone learn if there are no formal teachers or curriculum?
In the place of formal teachers, we have facilitator or mentor where schoolers will get best the best way to learn what they want. Instead of fixed curriculum, we have a individualized approach. If you want to explore functional programming, we will find the best path to learn it. In our research, we have found that everyone learns a lot when a group of smart, curious people get in a room together to write code and help each other grow.
Do you have any lectures?
The facilitators/ mentors are not the lecturers. In fact we will break the groups into pairs to help each other something new. Actually, we will never treat shoolers as students, but they will be assigned project of Smart Samaj later and they have to work on it. Mentors will assist them. But we occasionally host guest speakers. These talks expose students to new ideas and, more important, serve as an excuse to get students interacting with speakers; schoolers can always watch lectures online if they want, but you cant interact with a video. Host guests are paid by Smart Samaj Foundation for taking their time.
Is this a PHP or .Net training program?
No, we don’t go strictly on language or framework. The purpose of G-Hackadmey isn’t to learn a specific language but to make a better programmer. Schoolers can write code in any language or any platform. Designer can also go on any platform using any software or scripting languages.
Can I join G- Hackademy if I do not know how to program / design?
