Global figures show a startling economic disparity with women losing jobs at almost twice the rate of men and leaving 47 million more women and girls below the poverty line. While girls across the world tend to outperform boys in reading and writing skills, they continue to be under-represented in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). It is critical that our young women are equipped with the necessary skills to earn and thrive.
The Techy Train Incubator (TTI) Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in March 2021 and incorporated by the Corporate Affairs Commission as a Trustee in January 2022.
TTI Foundation was established to empower young African women and Youth with digital skills that will bridge the technology gap and build capacity in them to thrive. We provide them with the right tools to work their way out of poverty, care for their families and strengthen their communities. We are devoted to investing in them to become financially independent, digitally efficient, purpose oriented, career confident, and socially connected.
So far, we have implemented bootcamps that inspire and empower young women. We have trained 1731 young women on basic digital skills, and we are currently training 9 young ladies on Software Development. The goal is to ensure they are ready and well equipped for the future of work and can compete globally and favorably.
