You Make Women in STEMS Dreams a Reality

Software engineers, doctors, computer programmers, oh my!

These are just some of the professions that girls in rural Southwest Uganda dream of becoming. However, in this region, it is common for poor uneducated women to begin families while in their teens, trapping them (and often their children) in poverty.

Because of your support, Nyaka’s female students are able to access the education needed to achieve their dream STEM* careers. Through Nyaka’s Robotics Club, students are able to learn hands-on technological skills that are applicable to the professional world. The club emphasizes students creating electronic devices that benefit their communities.

Through the club, a team of female students have created a phone app that helps nurses tend to patients in the overcrowded local hospitals. Follow the link to watch our video, and you will meet three female secondary students who you have empowered through technology! The girls talk about how the club not only prepares them for the workforce with applicable skills, but has also improved their confidence and their ability to work as a team.

Because of your support, Nyaka’s women are able to become the technological leaders of tomorrow!
