“Coding Your Way to Opportunity”

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Youth unemployment is an acute problem in South Asia, in part due to a mismatch of skills learned in school and those demanded by employers.
  • Confident that youth can find innovative solutions to the challenges they face, the World Bank and Microsoft are launching a call for proposals for a South Asia Regional Grant Competition related to coding skills.
  • The deadline for the submission of proposals is June 10, 2014.
Unemployment is one of the most acute problems facing youth in South Asia today. Young people between the ages of 15 and 24 account for one fifth of the region’s population but half of the region’s unemployed.  Furthermore, job market pressure is intensifying, with 1-1.2 million young people entering the South Asian work force every month over the next two decades.

Coding Your Way to Opportunity
The regional grant competition invites youth-led initiatives and organizations to showcase fresh, innovative ideas that bridge the existing coding gap in South Asia between those who have access to the gaining skills they need to be successful and those who do not. Learning to code can propel job creation and development, and boost shared prosperity In South Asia and other regions, coding and computing have become essential and desirable job skills. Jointly implemented by the World Bank and Microsoft, the competition aims to enable youth to expand coding knowledge amongst their peers, in turn helping them secure gainful employment.
The program will be organized in four South Asian countries – BangladeshMaldives, Nepal and Sri Lanka. Each country will win one grant of at least US$10,000 to carry out an innovative project, one year in duration.

- The output or results outlined in proposals should be measurable and demonstrate a direct impact in project areas. Projects with the sole final output of research, such as publications, or conferences/forums with no directly verifiable results will be ineligible.
- Innovation is one of the key criteria of selection. Out of the box initiatives, which can be practically implemented, will score.
What Kind of Activities Are Not Supported?
