“Understand it well as I may, my comprehension can only be an infinitesimal fraction of all I want to understand”

Who we are

The Girl Code is a Non Profit Organization based in New Delhi, India and Singapore, founded by two 16 year old girls from New Delhi (Japnit K. Ahuja and Samriddhi Agnihotri). It aims to introduce young girls to programming by hosting workshops at local schools.

What we do

The Girl Code takes a step toward balancing the gender ratio in the tech industry by providing an online platform to girls to learn programming and hosting workshops to reach out to young students. Our primary aim, is to instil in them the confidence that they can code.

Why we do it

Only 11% programmers in the world are female. The IT industry is dominated by men, with women seldom finding a place in it. This has caused women to believe that they can’t code; an absurd, but sad reality. At The Girl Code we’re determined to change this reality.
