When you donate to the FGE/Tech Up Give Back program, you will be helping at-risk women and girls gain critical new skills to set them on the path to careers in technology. Donations will support specific initiatives, led by committed, outstanding professionals, that are making a difference now. We will begin with donations to the programs below and continue to evaluate others, including those with an emphasis on youth. Donations will also support training, purchase of computers and related costs, such as interview prep and dress.
Our vision is that as the FGE/Tech Up programs grows, its impact and exposure will increase. This means more survivors of exploitation and violence will gain marketable skills, confidence and a way forward to successful jobs and independence. Besides the program's impact on individuals, leveraging increased awareness and enlisting major entities, like corporations and foundations, can bring donations of significant funds, technology, in-kind goods, and services.
Your Donations are imperative and highly appreciated. Remember, no donation is too small.
The dynamic Tech Up for Women organization is integrating the FGE/Tech Up Give Back initiative fully across its innovative platform built on program excellence and powerful outreach to women and girls.

AnnieCannons is a mission-driven software development agency that trains, employs, and ultimately transforms survivors of human trafficking and gender-based violence into software engineers. After the AnnieCannons core concepts boot camp, survivors enter an “earn-to-learn” program, much like a teaching hospital, where they can continue to build skills and incomes over time. After basic training, survivors build more advanced skills through practice on paying projects, under the guidance of expert mentors.
The FGE Tech Up Give Back initiative will support the training of these survivors so that they learn valuable job skills and become economically independent. For more on the specifics of the program and what your donation will fund, go to: https://www.anniecannons.com/.
