Maria Sirghi, one of the new members recruited to participate in the first bootcamp in Dubasari
"Each web page accessed had something that attracted my interest. And not once did I ask myself: How are these sites made? But here I was able to join the GirlsGoIT project and "feel on my skin" how to make a web page. In the first lesson, I became familiar with the main elements of the Internet, the way in which it was used and I made the sketch of my own site. We have very beautiful impressions and I hope that in the future we will have equally merry and interesting lessons"
- Maria Sîrghi, Member of GirlsGoIT in Dubasari

Another process of establishing a club in the regions is through cooperation with the youth centre and high-school directors and or Informatics teacher.
