Congratulations, Class of 2018!

Closing the Gender Gap in Technology

Our initiative is unique in that it helps develop the whole girl: educating her mind, supporting her health, and helping her secure future success.

August 22, 2018

Here at CFK, we are investing in information and technology initiatives to empower a generation of youth, especially girls. Our Girls Training Center is a cornerstone of CFK’s Youth Program and exclusively supports girls interested in learning information technology. Our computer lab programs offer girls training in different aspects of multimedia, web and graphic design, online research and coding in different languages.

Our initiative is unique in that it helps develop the whole girl: educating her mind, supporting her health, and helping her secure future success. Beyond computer skills, girls learn about entrepreneurship and life skills – including topics like marketing and branding to self-esteem and confidence in reproductive health and wellness.

This past spring, our Information and Computer Technology (ICT) initiative hosted a cohort of over fifty girls from Kibera during the 2-month training program. Thirty girls successfully graduated from the program and moved into internship opportunities where they began using their newly learned skills. We hope this will be the beginning of their journey to economic advancement.

Congratulations to each of our 2018 Girls’ ICT Program graduates! We wish you all the best in your future.

"My dream is to progress in my career and sense of livelihood," shared Christine, 2018 CFK ICT graduate.
