Power Up Gaza Geeks

Help us #PowerUpGazaGeeks! Gaza is one of the toughest environments in the world: closed borders, frequent conflict, and only 4 hours of electricity per day. The tech sector there provides a special opportunity: the internet allows businesses to target external markets, education levels are high, and costs are low.

#PowerUpGazaGeeks will give Gaza’s pioneering founders and developers the resources they need to launch regionally competitive businesses. Our first goal is to get a generator to provide electricity on evenings and weekends so that Gazans can work 12 hours per day even during Gaza’s biggest energy crisis. This will double our co-working space hours and thus double their productivity!

Our second goal is to launch Gaza’s first coding academy. Gaza has a pool of passionate, skilled developers working in outsourcing, freelancing, and startups. But after more than a decade of isolation, we have few full-stack developers in Gaza who are fully up to date the latest engineering trends. Even in the tech sector, knowledge transfers best through in-person communities – not the internet alone. The whole world is thirsty for more tech talent. With Gaza’s tech sector picking up pace – and the global tech sector hungry for talent – now is the time to connect Gazans to the world. If we reach that goal, we’ll also fundraise to teach tech entrepreneurship to 20 girls in Gaza. Let’s get them interested in coding and business before they choose what to study in college!
