Amaliah have partnered with 23 Code Street to create a scholarship fund for Muslim women. This will allow 2 Muslim women a place on the 23 code street Part Time Web Development Foundation Course at a 50% subsidised rate.
At Amaliah we are passionate about the representation of Muslim women. We want to contribute to creating a world in which Muslim women SEE themselves. Over the last year and a half, we have realised how lonely it can sometimes feel being a minority founder. We walk into rooms and see no one that looks like us, we question if we are there as a token gesture or if we will ever really fit in.
23 Code Street believes that diversity breeds innovation. This means gender, diversity, class, and religion. Right now, the political climate is unfairly hostile towards Muslims. This means that now, more than ever, we need Muslim representation across all industries and, especially female Muslim representation.
We believe that when our workforce accurately represents the diverse society that we live in, we will begin to see new products and services that serve all of us. Learning to code, diversity and inclusivity is a matter close to our heart at Amaliah. Our very existence is on the basis that we want more representation across the board. Amaliah was made possible because Nafisa had the opportunity to learn to code. It gave her the skills and confidence to build the first version of Amaliah, a simple one-page website that curated modest fashion.
It’s not an understatement to say that Amaliah wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for coding schools like 23 Code Street. We hope the women that receive this scholarship are able to in turn help the next generation of Muslim women get a foot in the door.
