With the release of the lockdown in August, Womanity ws able to re-open in-person activities and increase its offer to students by opening new courses in English, basic computer literacy, and introduction to coding. About 350 students are currently enrolled in our classes and expect to complete courses by the end of the year.
We are very proud that throughout the year, we were able to offer additional online courses to GCC alumni both organized by Womanity or by third parties ensuring that they will preserve their skills and learnings while waiting to join University.
In parallel, Womanity is upgrading the computer labs in schools as well as upgrading hygiene facilities to allow a better management of rules related to social distance.
Finally, as part of the COVID relief support, we have organised a second round of distribution of food parcels directed at 160 families (students and schools’ staff) who are facing difficulties due to loss of income or jobs as a result of the pandemic.
