Women’s Technology Empowerment Centre (W.TEC) is raising funds on Global Giving to help up to 100 girls attend next year’s W.TEC Technology Camp, and they need to raise $5,000 from 40 donors by September 30.

The W.TEC Technology Camp is a 2-week technology education and mentoring programme with the objective of helping girls develop an early interest in computers and ICT in general. It happens in Lagos every year and young girls from all over Nigeria participate (it’s a residential camp, so accommodation and feeding are sorted).

For next year’s programme, W.TEC wants to raise $20,000 to give more young girls the opportunity to be exposed to technology. In their words, “We meet so many brilliant girls everyday in our work and we need to nurture their interest in technology, so they can one day soon form the next generation of young women creating and influencing technology.”

W.TEC needs $20,000 for next year’s programme, and they have to raise $5,000 from 40 donors by September 30 because that’s the only way they can get a permanent spot on Global Giving.

If you want to donate to a good cause (encouraging female participation in Nigerian technology, for instance), head over to W.TEC’s page on Global Giving.

The world is getting increasingly insular. Borders are getting shut and walls are being proposed. Migrant children are being locked in cages, denied such luxury as soaps and beds. Our former colonial overlords, the Brits as they’re affectionately known, are also at it again. Since 2016, they’ve contorted themselves into several unseemly shapes as they […]
