Get Started

The Tech-Up Girls initiative was set up to bridge the gender digital skills gap in Africa by exposing young women to the world of technology as well as guiding them on how to leverage technology to survive, thrive and be globally relevant.

It offers women between the ages of 16 and 30 a 4-week intensive and immersive bootcamp where they will learn an introduction to technology and be ushered into the world of technology. Embedded into the program are weekly coaching calls where the intellect area of these women is stimulated. During the coaching calls, they discuss with experts on topics bothering as Goal settings, Mind Reset, understanding how to manage and multiply money, sustainable development goals, and more.

They are also assessed using quizzes and projects. Exceptional students are encouraged to apply for the TECH-UP LADIES initiative.

The program aims to help them learn, be empowered to earn, and work.

The initiative initially aimed to empower 5000 young women by December 2022. However, by June 2022, we had empowered over 5900. The subsequent cohorts are will be operating on a reviewed system and with a new goal.

Most of the past participants are currently working as virtual assistants and social media managers across different fields, while most others have moved further to starting their own agencies and businesses and taking a career in other technical skills like cyber security, UI/UX, programming, and more.
