Women Techsters initiative will empower 5 million African women over the next 10 years through advocacy and training programs holding simultaneously across the continent.
Tech Girls Advocacy
The Tech-Girls Drive is an onsite grassroot advocacy effort
under the Women Techsters initiative. It is designed to create
awareness and spur the interest of young girls between the
ages of 8 – 20 years to take up careers in Science,
Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). It serves as
an initial touch point for young girls who will eventually
participate in Africa’s technology ecosystem.
The Tech-Girls Advocacy Drive can be implemented individually or as a Group.
