“Programming opens new skylines. It gives me the freedom that I couldn’t envision.” These are the expressions of Diana Zhanakbayeva, a young lady from Kazakhstan who, alongside three cohorts, just brought home the best prize at a universal coding challenge.

Extraordinary thoughts can originate from any place and from anybody. That is what’s behind the 2017 Technovation Challenge, which is run by the nonprofit Iridescent, announced last fall in partnership with Google’s Made with Code and UN Women to offer young women from around the world the chance to code an app that solves a real-world challenge. More than 11,000 young ladies from 103 nations shaped groups to address issues in those classifications: peace, destitution, condition, balance, instruction, and well-being.

This week, the finalists set out to Google’s central command in Mountain View to pitch their thoughts to a board of tech pioneers and different specialists. And tonight, in front of 900+ supporters, educators, mentors, and past participants, the four girls behind a safety app called QamCare have crowned the winner of the Senior Division.

QamCareTo young girls around the globe who took an interest in the Challenge or who are considering a career in computer science or any field: we believe you should be encouraged and empowered to become the coders, entrepreneurs, and inventors that change the world for the benefit of mankind. We will constantly work to make industry and condition in which women feel welcome and can flourish.
