ICT AND DIGITAL SKILLS
ICT is a major tool for ensuring universal access, quality of provision and delivery, and empowerment of women and girls for meaningful personal lives, and contribution to social-economic development.
ICT opens up possibilities for innovation, entrepreneurship, and employability. Girl's and women’s access to ICT and digital skills is essential for the attainment of gender equality.
The internet is critical to sharing new ideas, fighting injustice, and helping create new jobs – with it people can achieve extraordinary things. Unfortunately, more than half of the women and girls in Africa do not have access to the internet – it is a luxury. Access to the internet gives women and girls the opportunity to change their lives.
Save Our Needy promotes the creation of inclusive digital societies and strives to unlock the potential of women and girls in ICT, fostering gender equality. We strengthen women’s and girls’ empowerment through digital skills. Save Our Needy trains, women, and girls, to solve equity and social justice issues in their communities using technology.
We support women and girls in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields to launch or expand their own initiatives that will increase their digital opportunities in IoTs, Mobile Internet, E-Commerce, Digital Marketing, and leadership roles.
We work to provide access to technology for marginalized women and girls and ensure that they have the skills, education, and literacy to use the Internet.
Together, we can make a difference in the digital inclusion of women and girls in Africa.
