Give The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Since 2007, Systers have been giving back to our community and women around the world through the Anita Borg Systers Pass It On Awards. These awards ($500 – $1,000) help women across the globe have a huge impact through technology in their own communities. Award monies are used to pay for school, supplemental fees, to start ICT programs for girls in their communities, code workshops for women, and much more.  The impact is long lasting and continues to spark innovative program development that brings about positive change .

Our awards winners are from:
Afghanistan
Cameroon
Canada
Ghana
India
Indonesia
Italy
Jamaica
Kenya
Nigeria
Pakistan
Peru
Tanzania
Uganda
Ukraine
United Kingdom
United States
Vietnam
Zambia
Zimbabwe

Additionally, the awards are the tools to kickstart important technology workshops for girls, to jump start careers in art technology and even to being the first computer science graduate in the family. The projects are amazing and inspiring. Help Systers continue our passionate initiative to help women transform technology. As Systers, we have a moral obligation to “pass on” the benefits gained from the awards. It is The Gift That Keeps On Giving! It comes full circle for us. As we “pass on” to other women, they in turn pass it on to other women and next generation girls in their communities. Donate to our Systers Pass-It-On Awards and know that your dollars are making a difference.
