GIRLS UNLIKELY TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL
GIRLS OUT OF SCHOOL
MILLIONS OF GIRLS MARRIED OFF BEFORE 18 YEARS
INCREASED SECONDARY EDUCATION COMPLETION RATES, AND ACCESS TO BASIC QUALITY STEM EDUCATION
STEM EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIPS
Studies show that by age 15 girls lose interest in sciences and math. Our curriculum and scholarship provides a hands on immersive engineering design thinking and computational thinking education experience for school aged girls to attend secondary school, set personal goals, connect with career role models, explore their potential through job shadowing, life skills development and create computer based programs to solve a community problem. Role models break stereotypes and biases on who belongs in school, college and these high paying entrepreneurial and occupation STEM opportunities. We transform academic performance through hands on science and math learning and spark STEM interest and retention through real world career exploration. Educate Girls

GREEN TECHNOLOGY SKILLS OF THE FUTURE
Less than 50% of rural girls and women have access to technology. Social barriers, poor technology infrastructure and gender discrimination prevent the expansion of basic digital literacy skills among women and girls in rural Kenya.
The high cost of technology, expensive education and poor access to real world STEM exploration programs limit remote learning, intercultural awareness and competing for economic global opportunities. This makes it harder to break the cycle of poverty for a girl growing up with language barriers, limited social and economic connections in rural areas.
Rural digital transformation and economic development is at the core of our mission. We educate, mentor and empower rural girls and women in vocational technology and cyber security skills that have a sustainable impact on the environment.
Our beneficiaries in turn pursue a STEM related scholarship, computer science related degree , lead a community design thinking project or start local social enterprises that make them a voice of Technology change in a rural community.
ENHANCED ACCESS TO ROLE MODELS THAT PREPARE A PRODUCTIVE FUTURE STEM TALENT FOR WOMEN ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT
HOW IT WORKS
CAREER EXPOSURE AND GLOBAL AWARENESS
We implement a human centered approach to learning. Our “STEM talking box” give underprivileged girls the opportunity to voice their ideas, receive feedback and envision their future through the eyes of someone that they can relate to or has lived their experience. Your career pathway journey, in the field and behind the scenes stories spark passion.
Our stories and career journeys are not perfect. Infact they are far from it. We are just a living testimony that anything is possible.! Your story motivates, it inspires, builds resilience and it gives hope of being successful in choosing a career path in STEM.
HANDS-ON INNOVATIVE THINKING
Our girls are ready to work immediately after high school. Refer our talent to your employers. Our supportive network of mentors give our girls access to Computer basics, coding, and digital skills training, DIY creative skills training, sanitary towels, behind the scene office and manufacturing plant tours, donations for headphones, Computer Hardware, Software, STEM books, STEM Project Kits, Fiction Books, Computers, pay for internet access, provide school scholarships and food supplies while preparing them for a future career in a green economy.
No donation is too small. No time is too little. No tour is too boring.
Ask us how to get involved.
CLOSE ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT GAP
We select intelligent girls with high academic performance at risk of school dropout due to limited financial and social resources, and place them in secondary school. Girls performance scores in Science and Math subjects are lower than boys and by the time they reach the last two years of high school, they are less likely than boys to take advanced classes in sciences and maths. We retain interest in these core subjects.
We maintain a database of trained mentors as role models who provide guidance in problem-solving, developing better study habits, education content development, afterschool homework support and help girls set and stay accountable to school performance goals, increase girls’ scores in these subjects leading to greater self confidence in selecting a college course and a career choice in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
PEER TO PEER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
We implement technology and STEM learning resources in grassroot led organizations, under resourced schools and foster peer to peer community learning exchange partnerships that align with our mission. We train the trainer for a greater community impact. The persistent representation and social view of males and whites in STEM literature and career applications lead to self-doubt and discourages a high number of African descent girls from pursuing STEM majors.
Use your voice to tell others about our STEM education resources, educate and equip parents, teachers, men, become community leaders, policy leaders, book authors, publishers, employers with STEM resources that improve diversity in representation. Majority of our returning mentors initiate social impact STEM projects in their own community. We empower women to lead for change.
