The Women Techsters initiative is aimed at bridging the digital and technology knowledge divide between men and women as well as ensuring equal access to opportunities for all. We are empowering girls and women across Africa with varying degrees of digital, deep tech and soft skills required within the technology ecosystem.

The initiative will empower 5 million African women over the next 10 years (2020-2030) through a series of activities held simultaneously across different countries.

Our objective is to grow and support an army of tech-empowered girls and women across Africa who will have equal access to decent job opportunities as well as build and scale their ideas into tech-enabled businesses and deep tech startups, which will aid Africa’s economic growth.

Objectives

  • To empower African women to establish start-ups or technology-enabled businesses to build an entrepreneurial mindset in them.
  • To support women to become digitally enabled, social champions, and owners of businesses
  • To bridge the digital divide between men and women in the tech space while contributing to economic growth
  • Ultimately improve the socio-economy of the Africa continent by providing skills that will elevate women from poverty
