The programme focuses on empowering women through coding capabilities.
The Government of the Sultanate of Oman’s Public Establishment for Industrial Estates, Madayn launched a pilot coding programme for a number of Omani females from different governorates in collaboration with the National Business Centre.
The coding programme is established as part of the first Middle Eastern and North African Women’s Congress in the Sultanate to focus on empowering women through coding capabilities and will be held during the 14th to the 16th of October.
Moreover, the programme hosted at Knowledge Oasis Muscat aims to not only teach women how to code to earn a living but also establish an online business to create more women like themselves and empower them with the skills needed to earn income from their own businesses at ease.
The coding programme aligns with MENA Women’s Congress and Madayn’s key mission to support entrepreneurship through a variety of incubation programmes such as the National Business Centre and Industrial Innovation Centre as well as funding innovative and emerging startup in the region. The National Business Centre is an initiative by Madayn to offer promising Omani entrepreneurs a platform to develop their business models and transform them into growing ventures as one of their main objectives, by offering financial and administrative support, as well as consultancy services that are essential in ensuring the success and longevity of new businesses.
Lastly, the event is sponsored by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) which supports MENA Women’s Congress to support women in the region by creating more opportunities through online learning, digital bonding to form a community through women-only business incubators which aligns with the US-based CTEK Foundation initiative to enhance coding capabilities among women across the globe.
