The program targets girls and young women aged between 14-25 years living in rural or informal settlements such as Turkana and Kibera Nairobi. The program equips girls and young women with skills in technology, design and business as well as helping to build their identity. The program has two chapters in Nairobi and Turkana, Kenya. For the Nairobi chapter, the sessions take place during school terms on a weekly basis. The Turkana session has daily sessions as well as monthly workshops. The program exists to bridge the gender digital divide in Kenya and expose girls and young women to opportunities that exist in the tech space. This will enable program beneficiaries become economically and socially empowered to become change makers.
