Tomorrow’s Youth Organization:
In 2008, TYO Founder Hani Hikmat Masri opened the doors of the first American non-profit organization based in Nablus, Palestine. The TYO model was developed in close collaboration with the communities the organization serves to address a number of complex and interrelated developmental challenges such as poverty, unemployment, a mental health crisis, lack of access to medical resources, and a lack of access to quality education. They support families living in the four refugee camps of Nablus, the Old City and in the neighborhood of Khallet Al-Amood (where their center is located). Due to the economic and social conditions and high-levels of exposure to violence, these areas are deemed most in-need.

Radical action is needed to close the opportunity gap for Black women and girls. Their goal is to establish representation in the tech sector. Black Girls CODE is devoted to showing the world that Black girls can code and do so much more.
