Irena Bakić joins AGI to lead Coding Bus Africa

 

Irena Bakić has been appointed as the coordinator of an upcoming Finland 100 project Coding Bus Africa.

Bakić is a recent graduate of Aalto School of Chemical Technology. Over the past five years she has played an active role in Aalto-UNICEF collaborations and worked for UNICEF Innovation Units in Uganda and New York. She also has prior experience from the African startup scene.

Coding Bus Africa is part of the official Finland 100 centenary programme. The project aims to empower youth to discover, create and use technology in their lives by organizing creative coding workshops in eight African countries in spring 2017. Aalto Global Impact coordinates the initiative, which is a joint effort between Finnish embassies, Mehackit, Slush and a number of African tech hubs, educational institutes, NGOs and private companies.
