  • Breaking Barriers: Empowering girls through ICT

    In Ghana, a country where more than half of the population is female, it’s alarming to note that women only earn around 30% of the total household income.

Basic IT Education is a MUST for future JOBS!

The students of today are the employees, entrepreneurs, and leaders of tomorrow. But how do you expect them to create value if basic skills are never taught?

Meet Elizabeth, 16 years old, in Junior High School. She never touched a computer before and never used the internet. She is used to repeating what the teacher says – and gets good grades for that. But she has never learned how to express her own thoughts, work in a team, or think critically. She struggles to organize herself if exposed to a new task. Her self-confidence is low, as her voice is not heard.

Exposed to a youth coding project (Scratch), Elizabeth could explore a digital world and build her own projects in a playful way. She can feel how successful teamwork leads to results, she can be creative. At the same time, she will only be successful if she thinks critically and follows the logic of the code.

This empowers her to develop & grow herself, get exposed, and get pre-qualified for a formal job in the future. Maybe she even becomes a digital native and leader? We believe that playful IT training with a focus on coding is the ideal tool to unlock & grow vital skills of young students.
