Techamaka, in partnership with Germany’s G20 #eskills4girls, has launched a digital literacy program designed to train 300 young girls within Lagos.
Powered by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Corporation and Development, the #eskills4girls literacy program seeks to empower girls with digital skills that will prepare them for the future of work.
In keeping up with its goal to drive female inclusion in tech, and in the long term train 1000 girls, Techamaka has selected 100 young girls between the ages of 8 and 18 each in three schools in Ikorodu, Ikoyi, and Surulere.
The training is set to open on April 13th with Crowns and Jewels Home School, Ikorodu; STC Model College, Surulere on April 15th; and Holy Child College, Ikoyi on April 28th.
Selected participants will be trained on basic aspects of web development and coding among other relevant tech skills in anticipation of their possible future tech careers.
Launched in March 2021, Techamaka is a Women@Godo initiative that aims to promote tech inclusion for all girls, ensuring that young females in underserved and underrepresented African communities acquire digital literacy.
The #eSkills4Girls is an initiative launched under Germany’s G20 presidency. It aims at tackling the existing gender digital divide in particular in low-income and developing countries.
Its goal is to globally increase the access of women and girls in the digital world and to boost relevant education and employment opportunities.
