Engineering, Leadership and Entrepreneurship School for African Girls. Lets close the coding gap with world class female African leaders!

Next cohort starts April 18th, 2016… Lagos Nigeria!

Awele Institute is an immersive software engineering school for African women that also focuses on Technology Leadership and Entrepreneurship.

We help our graduates secure a job after graduating to help pay their tuition.

Our mission is to empower African women in technology and software programming through affordable education, quality instruction, and individualized mentorship. We provide a world-class educational environment with an advanced curriculum, taught by experienced instructors. We connect our students with a support network of alumnae and mentors and work with local and global tech companies to get them recruited.

We exist to disrupt popular thinking. Our slogan: Well behaved women rarely make history!

Awele Institute is a 16 week program. The experience starts with a 4 week part-time course, Foundations, which is completed remotely before coming to campus. That’s followed by the full-time 12 week immersive, held on-campus at our Isolo headquarters in Lagos Nigeria. While on campus, students learn through a mix of lectures, hands-on workshops, projects, peer-programming, leadership, presentation, entrepreneurship, start-up ventures, pitching, team building, ethics, morals and much more!

We have been empowering girls with STEM education in Africa for over 8 years. Have fun with us!
