Women and Tech

The aim of this program would be to encourage more women participation in the civic technology community in Sierra Leone. Through more participation, we believe that women would be able to take advantage of technology and become active members in the civic tech movement.

We plan on training and empowering the women via the following initiatives:

  1. Workshops
  2. Hackathons
  3. Talks for encouraging women to learn tech based skills
  4. Regular training sessions through which women are mentored towards building their coding skills.

Our goal is to sustain a thriving community of female technology enthusiasts in Sierra Leone who would highlight some of the issues that women are facing in the country. By using their own experience coupled with their hacking skills, these women would be able to come up with unique solutions to their problems.
