About us

The IT Girls Foundation was established on the basis of the experience of its founders, sisters Wiola and Ada. They themselves have made their way in IT - from an idea for the future, through choosing studies, to working in the profession. The Foundation wants to inspire and educate children and youth about their development opportunities in professions related to new technologies and information technology.
