About Imagine Her-Project Hello World Fellowship:
As part of our work, we are implementing a Project dubbed Hello World which we seek to fill some vacant positions. Project Hello World provides educational resources and Internet connectivity to isolated and vulnerable communities. We do this by building solar-powered, outdoor Internet kiosks— so that underprivileged children and adults can educate themselves, communicate with others, and have a voice in the global community. To achieve this, we mobilize communities to build Hello Hubs which are solar-powered outdoor Internet kiosks, and state-of-the-art technology including high-quality solar panels, satellite connectivity, rugged, waterproof touch-screen screens, camera, and audio equipment. Hello Hubs are designed to withstand extreme outdoor weather and are energy-autonomous, which means that they can bring connectivity and education to even the most isolated communities.
Fellowship Overview: We are delighted to launch the annual Project Hello World Fellowship Program which is designed to train Female Engineers to solve community challenges in Uganda. There is no other comparable program in the world. Using a multidisciplinary approach the fellowship aims to develop core skills, community skills, and technical competence. Our approach is focused on practical field training delivered by professionals, research, innovation, and cutting-edge technology.

Hello World Fellows will be integrated into the local team in Kampala for 6+ months during which time they will become familiar with the components of the Hello Hub design, supervised by the onsite engineers.
