“It is important for women to have access to technology and digital skills so that we can learn and improve ourselves.” - Maxinne

At the start of the pandemic, 17-year-old student Maxinne wasn’t sure that she could continue her culinary arts course at Anihan Technical School. “My family can’t afford to support my studying online because they have to spend money for my cell phone prepaid load for me to connect to the internet using cellular data”, she tells us.

With the help of supporters like you, our local partner FPTI has been distributing tablets and data to Maxinne and other young women so they can keep learning online through the pandemic. Without access to these tools, they would miss out on their education during this time.

Maxinne is still adjusting to studying online and sometimes struggles with a poor online connection, “there are times when I can’t connect with my classmates and teachers because of poor signal”, she explained. However, she is eager and happy to be learning new digital skills.

For Maxinne, “it is important for women and girls to have access to technology and have digital skills so that we can learn and improve our skills. This will help us to engage in technology knowing how to use it in a good way.”

Having digital skills will also help young women like Maxinne to stay ahead in the future: “if I have digital skills, I can use those skills to set up my own business and do marketing online to help the growth of my business”.

“With the success of my business I can help support my family”, she adds.
