ABOUT THE PROGRAM

ReDI school’s Digital Women Program aims at empowering women by helping them develop their digital skills and helping them integrate into German society and the job market.

 

Who are these courses for?

  • Highly motivated women with a desire to improve their digital literacy.

  • Proactive women who are looking to meet people, and establish professional networks.

  • Students who are looking for new and innovative ways to integrate into German society.

Women Empowerment

ReDI school understands the challenges which women face trying to get access to a better education. For that reason, we make sure that we provide the needed support and an environment that facilitates the best learning experience. With that in mind, we offer free childcare and laptops for the duration of the course. As our childcare resources are limited, we give priority to special cases such as children of single mothers.

 

Our Teachers

Our teachers are experienced professionals, volunteering their time on a weekly basis, developing the curriculum for our free classes and leading the sessions. Their dedication is best rewarded by motivated and committed students.

Language

Due to the diversity of both our students and teachers, we offer translations in Arabic, Farsi, and Tigrinya for the Intro-level course. For all other courses, students are required to have a B1 level (or similar) in German and/or English.
