GIRLS IN TECHNOLOGY

We want young woman and girls to utilize their full potential without hindrance and have access to put their brains to work thereby increasing their capability to function in today’s world and be more marketable

We are providing a technology innovation hub center where young people in communities can come together, share ideas, build projects from scratch and start new companies.

We are training girls and woman the basics to advanced programming for free enabling them to build a portfolio by the end of the training course.

We are working hard to close the gender gap in technology by encouraging more girls and woman to learn how to read and write using computer technology
