Challenge

Female education in schools continues to decline progressively from the basic to the tertiary level of our educational system. This is the reason why Achievers Ghana finds it important to help with the development of young women and to ignite the interest in ICT education in Ghana.

Solution

Achievers Ghana will focus on programming, Internet of Things and Robotics training targeted at girls between the ages of 8-16 years. The purpose of this project is to equip the selected girls with digital skills which can be used to solve problems peculiar to their communities and can be a means to generate income. Our end goals is to help the girls create a path for their success in education and give them relevant skills for livelighood and sustenance.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact is to create a foundation for a young female to develop relevant IT skills to catapult them into entrepreneurship in STEM-related careers which seem to be a specialty dominated by men. We believe this initiative will provide a platform to harness knowledge sharing amongst women in the tech industry and most importantly create opportunities to develop women and increase female employment rate in the country.
