Empowering communities with digital and job skills

Advanced IT & Entrepreneurship Training & Digital Incubation Program for Women in Sub-Saharan Africa

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all aspects of girls’ lives in Uganda. School closures, loss of jobs, disruption of health care services, & increased rates of teenage pregnancy will continue to have damaging effects on the economy of Uganda.

In October 2020, we partnered with The Women’s World Wide Web (w4.org) to use our mobile solar computer classroom, to take educational opportunities to young women aged 16 and 25.

The project enables young women to benefit from high quality entrepreneurship & intermediate ICT training that culminates into a digital incubator that supports them launch their social enterprises.

As a whole, this program can last from eight months (IT advanced & entrepreneurship training) to seventeen months (including the digital incubation program).

The program has so far reached over 81 girls and graduated 63 students.
