BRIDGE AND BIND CLOSE THE DIGITAL DIVIDE
GIRLS UNLIKELY TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL
GIRLS OUT OF SCHOOL
MILLIONS OF GIRLS MARRIED OFF BEFORE 18 YEARS
LESS THAN 50% OF HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS IN KENYA KNOW A WOMAN IN STEM
YOUR STORY MATTERS
It is never too boring to share and it provides exposure to career choices and life skills development. If a girl is from an informal settlement ,or rural area, her chances of knowing a woman in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics career are even slimmer. Your story breaks stereotypes and biases on who belongs in these high paying entrepreneurial and occupation opportunities. Close the gap.
STEM WORKFORCE REPRESENT WOMEN
STEM WORKFORCE REPRESENT BLACKS
BEGINS AT HOME
Unfortunately most of the guardians and parents for the underprivileged girls we serve are illitrate and have never attended school. Social barriers and gender discrimination prevent the expansion of literacy skills among women and girls in Kenya. The High cost of technology, poor access to STEM programs and high cost of internet limits remote learning and global remote economic opportunities making it harder to break the poverty cycle for a girl growing up poor.
USE YOUR PRIVILEGE TO CLOSE THE GENDER AND DIVERSITY GAP IN STEM
Ways to Support
Lead by Example
We give underprivileged girls the opportunity to 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.
Provide Critical Basic Needs
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.
No donation is too small. No time is too little. No tour is too boring.
Ask us how.
Improve Performance Scores
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. Your guidance in problem solving, developing better study habits, education content development and helping girls set and stay accountable to school performance goals, increases 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.
Drive Community Change
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 educate and equip parents, teachers, men, community leaders, policy leaders, book authors, publishers, employers with STEM resources that improve diversity in representation. Our girls are ready to work immediately after high school. Refer our talent to your employers.
