Kyane Kassiri – NESA UGRAD and Coca-Cola MENA exchange programs – 2014

As alumnus of NESA UGRAD and Coca-Cola MENA exchange programs, Kayane teamed up with a group of other U.S. Department of State programs alumni to apply for the Alumni Engagement and Innovation Fund (AEIF).  Their project idea was selected and the team managed to launch Young Tunisian Coders Academy (YTCA). As a coding training program, YTCA uses open-source programming languages, to help more than 500 kids – between the ages of 10 and 15 and having limited access to technology – to program their own interactive stories, games and animations.

Kyane is also the Co-founder and CEO of Hannilab, a start-up specialized in mobile app development and web solutions for companies and businesses.
