Baramij Laha is an intensive training program designed to equip economically-disadvantaged young women with the technical skills and leadership abilities necessary for them to tackle issues they are passionate about, be prepared for global career opportunities in the 21st century, and become leaders in their communities. Taught by students from the United States, the program aims to bridge cultural divides between youth through peer-to-peer learning.
Baramij Laha: Palestine
codeHER launched its pilot Social-Entrepreneurship Program in Palestine virtually in March of 2021. The program is held fully in Arabic, led by Rana Obiat, codeHER's Middle East and North Africa Program Director. The five-week program involves 30 young women ages 18-25 who will form five teams of six participants in order to create their own social-impact organizations. At the capstone of the program, the students pitch their start-up organizations in a structured session to global professionals to receive feedback and potential funding for their projects.
