Millennium Fellowship Project: Palestech
Palestech is a project that aims to empower Palestinian youth with useful and effective skills in different technology fields. The project targets Palestinian refugees living in Lebanon, it organizes workshops in different refugee camps across Lebanon. These workshops teach participants coding and emerging tech skills, from game design to web development, and give them hands-on experiments and activities to build their programs for an awareness purpose or a cause. Also, it provides an online forum for additional video content, help, and connections. The project not only exposes passionate tech students to important concepts and knowledge in the technology field, but also allows them to dive into this field with their curiosity and creativity, and gain an opportunity to practice and experience it in different aspects.
