Challenge

Gender inequality is furthered by inadequate access to technology and a lack of education in the use of technology. In Ghana, five primary reasons exacerbate the gender digital divide and create barriers to women accessing mobile phones. Cost is the greatest impediment to owning a mobile phone. Women also identify other equally important barriers: inadequate literacy, safety and security concerns, low or no digital literacy, and lack of awareness of the relevancy of mobile technology.

Solution

Teach By Tech will train women in business education using a hybrid model of education that emphasizes digital literacy. Women are taught topics from basic accounting, to savings plan, marketing, business development, customer service and competition. In addition women will master the 1st three stages of digital literacy: traditional literacy , basic mobile literacy, and mobile technical literacy. Women develop competency in mobile internet literacy. Micro-finance workshops are also provided.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 80 Ghanaian women allowing them to start or expand a business. With financial stability and inclusion, women will ensure access to education, healthcare and hygiene for their families. Successful female entrepreneurs create role models for the next generation, leading to a larger network of strong women determined to reduce poverty and have a voice in governance.
