Let's get Girls EXCITED ABOUT SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY.
We are Equipping The Next Generation TechStars In Africa.
Only 15% of junior college girls make choices for Science/Technology subjects at senior level & in the University. It is equally important that women participate in the fields of Science & Engineering- STEM fields, because these areas are essential for innovation and economic growth.
We have a designed a framework that enables us to reach out to young girls and women in Africa, inspired and supported to choose STEEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Entrepreneurship, Mathematics) subjects as part of their post secondary goals.
Tech4Her is driven to create & expand more economic opportunities for girls and women by providing them with STEM knowledge, skills, tools, and mentoring leveraging the power of Technology. Enabling women to enter STEM jobs & adapt the digital skills to whatever profession they are currently doing will provide a boost to the economy.
Investing in girls’ education transforms communities, countries and the entire world. Girls who receive an education are less likely to marry young and more likely to lead healthy, productive lives.
They earn higher incomes, participate in the decisions that most affect them, and build better futures for themselves and their families.

To sustain our efforts in ensuring more girls actively choose STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) subjects, we thought it well to introduce them early to STEM from Junior school by reading storybooks that will inspire and inform their decisions in later.
