Cloud Girls is collaborating with the Afterschool Alliance STEM team to write grant criteria and distribute the funds to qualified programs. Programs affiliated with the Afterschool Alliance will be invited to apply for the mini-grants sponsored by Cloud Girls by describing what they intend to do with the grant money to provide a dynamic learning environment for technology education and to creatively inspire young women’s interest in technology. Cloud Girls members plan to actively participate in the local execution of the programs selected.
Cloud Girls and Telecom for Change invite like-minded individuals and companies to join the fundraising effort.
