Code On The Road

By: Aya Burweila

Based In: Athens, Greece

Description:“Code on the Road: Empowering Women and Girls through Business Entrepreneurship and Software Training” is a winning program designed to empower women and
girls in post-conflict zones by giving them the skills, knowledge, and mentorship to create opportunities for themselves and thrive in a new environment.
Since 2011, the wars in Syria and Libya have sparked a large scale refugee crisis. In Greece, the total number of refugees is over 40,000 while in Jordan, there are over
1.5 million refugees who have fled conflict. In countries like Libya, which is where Code on the road wishes to scale up its operations, the civil war that followed decades of
oppressive rule and isolation has killed entrepreneurship and stunted educational development in the field of STEM while also creating almost half a million internally
displaced Libyans.
In such a critical post-conflict condition, job market integration is a crucial foundation that can have strong benefits not only for women themselves but also for their
children, family members and society at large. At the same time, authorities around the world struggle with ICT skills gap and there is a sharp shortage of women with
software skills. Code on the Road’a low-cost training, scalable to all of the Arab world and to men as well, is to provide our students with a two-pronged solution: 1) country
specific Code on the Road mobile training courses in business entrepreneurship in both Arabic and English and 2) Software and coding workshops to teach women the
basics of what they need to launch their virtual businesses.

A Helping Hand For Africa

By: Mohamed Dhaouafi

Based In: Tunisia

Description: CURE is a health tech startup that aims to empower people with disabilities to allow them to be super heroes.
For that, Cure provides them with 3D printed bionic hands which can be continuously personalized. It’s also stylish controlled by muscles so no need for surgical
intervention to implement it and easy to use thanks to our AI-based algorithm. It’s adjustable since children grow fast. It will be easy to get and to assemble like LEGO
toys. Cure’s prosthetics will be more inclusive by having a wireless and solar charger since many areas in the world don’t have access to electricity.
Cure is also developing a solution for physical therapy using virtual reality and gamification allowing amputees to see their missing hands in the virtual environment, to
control it thanks to a muscle sensor bracelet and to will play games that simulate the therapy exercises in a funny and entertaining way while the doctor can do the follow
up from a distance.This solution is affordable, personalized, entertaining, less stressing, mobile and can be performed from a distance since the physical therapy/training
infrastructure is absent in many regions and rural areas all around the world.
Cure’s dream to have the first world excellency center for people with disabilities where they can get what they need of technological solution, social and psychological
assistance but most importantly a training for a year to learn skills and acquire more capacities to inspire the world and be the new super leaders of their countries.
