About the Initiative

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 guide 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-weeks 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 expert on topics bothering on Goal settings, Mind Reset, understanding how to manage and multiply money, the 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.

It’s a community based social learning approach system where the young women are grouped into smaller cells of not more than 20 each assigned to a mentor who they engage with as often as possible to support their learning process.

Their lessons are hosted on a learning management system: self-paced but controlled.

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

The initiative originally had a goal of empowering 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 mangers across different fields while most others have moved further to starting their own agencies and businesses as well as take a career in other technology skills like cyber security, UI/UX, programming and more.

A Few Testimonials...

1. My Tech-up Girls Experience: The journey so far has been amazing. Tech-up girls became my first consistent class I have ever done in my life. Why? Because of the value shared daily –at the WhatsApp group, on Learning Management System. The value shared in this boot camp is worth more than a million. It brought me skills I never knew of before. This boot camp has given me 6 skills I am going to put out to the world. The experience has been mined blowing, when I get back from classes in school and church activities, then trying to open the day through to the next sleeping, my spirit will be like boom!!! Get up you have an important class you said you will be committed to through thick and thin, then am up buying night plan and following up my goals. I am thankful.

The Tech-up Girls boot camp is one of the best things that happened to me in 2021, it came at the right time and the journey is worth it. I used to be a novice in the social media space, but I wanted to create a job for myself since no office job was forth coming. During the boot camp I learnt Canva design, email marketing, video editing, bio-optimization, website setup and many more. I also learnt the basics of starting digital marketing services. Knowing my right as stated by the law, setting financial goals, getting the right mentor and a mindset reset of taking complete responsibility for my life and actions. After the boot camp I intended to start up a social media marketing service for SMEs and individuals by first taking up an internship to get hands on experience I also will enhance my knowledge by taking paid classes on my area of specialty which is social media marketing, content creation and email Marketing.
