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 5million African women over the next 10 years (2020-2030) through a series of activities holding simultaneously across different countries.
The Women Techsters Bootcamp strives to provide adequate learning opportunities for participants to develop relevant coding skills, jump-start careers, or fill in knowledge gaps from emerging technologies. It is going to be a 3-week introductory class in one of five learning tracks.
