Women as Tech Teachers

These young women make it possible to reach hundreds of students each week with laptops and learning.  They provide role models for young girls to see a future through learning, technology and access to information.  They help students build confidence in their own voices and intelligence.

During the July visit, we started providing them with goods to sell.  They are selling in the marketplaces and pooling their funds to invest in more entrepreneurial endeavors.  They have asked for help to purchase small motor bikes so that they can earn money after school by transporting passengers and ease their transport to school with the computers for the classes.  The piki pikis are usually driven by young men. These young women are stepping out.  Donate to their motor bikes.
