On August 28, 2019, the official Coding Girls Kampala Chapter came into being, in partnership with Fenix International, at its inaugural launch event held at Cavendish University Uganda.

The launch was sprung into action by Coding Girls’ Kampala Ambassador, Nakaweesi Jogia. Jogia touched on her experience and know-how in technology, whilst outlining her impetus and involvement in this exciting, new local Coding Girls chapter. Participants discovered how Jogia’s passion to help empower more women’s tech and programming careers, drove her to connect with Coding Girls, founder Anna Radulovski. The audience had a chance to listen to inspiring talks of the amazing women in tech: “Why your relationship with IT matters?” by Angela Semwogerere, Founder at Coding In Heels, "Being deliberate about acquiring technical skills against all odds" by Joreen Arigye, Data Specialist at Fenix International and "Ikigai: Growing your influence as a technologist" by Maria Kyumulabye.
