Become an Investor Training and Empowering Girls, Women and Communities for a Future in Technology
Uniquely Positioned to Meet a Growing Need
Women and girls continue to lag worldwide in technical education and training, which leads to the most remunerative work. According to the bureau of Labor Statistics, lack of a technically trained workforce is a leading indicator of poor economic growth in many areas. In the US alone, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there will be 1.4 million additional IT jobs created by 2020 and only 400,000 computer science graduates. With years of experience, a tested, proven model, and long-standing partnerships with educational and community partners, Each One Teach One is uniquely positioned to contribute to closing the gap between the supply of technically skilled workers and the demands of a digital economy.
Technology Training and Employment for Women and Girls in Developing Areas
Our organization piloted its program, providing coding and technology training and employment for girls, women, and other disenfranchised students, in our backyard, as well as around the world, with a goal to empower economic independence and personal contribution through finding employment in the technology sector. The program trains students to pay the cost of the program forward by becoming a mentor for someone else.
EachOneTeachOne achieves this through: • Leveraging proven technology training curricula for scalability • Following through from training through employment • Women-led organization sets an example of success and collaboration As a result, EachOneTeachOne clients transition from un- or under- employment, through training to greater self-sufficiency through more remunerative employment that better meets the needs of a digital economy.
Full Cycle-from Training to Employment
EOTO is unique in covering the full spectrum, from mentoring technical training, to mentoring seeking and finding employment in technical fields, specifically, software development. While other programs provide technology training, only EOTO follows through beyond training to link disenfranchised girls and women in developing countries to employment. Scalable and Global EOTO leverages online technology training resources like Codecademy and uses remote mentors, paired with coordinating partner NGOs on the ground. So EOTO can scale significantly and go anywhere.
Research shows that girls and women are under-represented in technology fields in school, and in technology-related employment. Technical jobs are among the most flexible and highest- paying. Lack of economic self-sufficiency resulting from gender inequality in education, training and employment reaps a grim harvest. It is one of the top reasons drawing and then trapping women into unhealthy relationships all over the world, creating sad conditions and pulling area economies down with them into a cycle of stagnation. Economic self-sufficiency for girls and women benefits everyone as it reduces financial motivations for getting into and staying in unhealthy relationships. Everyone benefits when all people achieve proficiency in skills, including technical skills, and have access to the best jobs. Each One Teach One seeks to address the imbalance in technical education, achievement, and job prospects. EOTO specifically targets girls and women in developing areas. Both the girls and women benefit in lifting themselves beyond the limitations of gender inequality, and their areas benefit from an increase in a skilled workforce and an increase in employment.
Theory of Action/Theory of Change
We strive for results where more girls and women achieve well-compensated, flexible employment in computing-related fields. Our model is created to provide concrete guidance and resources to girls and women, encouraging confidence, self-sufficiency and employment in computing-related fields. Our model is created to provide concrete guidance to achieve in technical skills, through use of existing online resources, guidance and mentoring. The model seeks to provide education that leads to jobs, which then will lay the foundation for economic self-sufficiency for girls and women. It will in turn leads to an improved ability to avoid and end unhealthy relationships based on financial dependence and lack of options. Desired outcomes include completion of technical training, completion of job seeking skills training, and finding work. The ultimate outcomes include better-compensated, more flexible employment options for girls and women, avoidance of unhealthy relationships and the resulting harms and costs, and increased employment in targeted areas. We believe in building skills through building confidence, and improving lives through education, training and gainful employment. Students are encouraged to challenge themselves, but progress at their own pace.
EOTO was started primarily with funding by a few private and corporate gifts. EOTO is currently developing a strategic plan, to ensure stability and sustainability. In accordance with the plan, EOTO will diversify its revenue mix over the next three years.
