BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE

Digital literacy and digital rights is more important than ever as it’s a path to critical information, services and opportunities available to many people especially the African woman for the first time. However this trend in technology has been remarkably low amongst African women. Despite its importance, mobile access and use remain unequal and un- used by the African woman

Women are still on a larger gap than men to own a mobile phone, and even more less likely to use the internet on a mobile. It’s critical that the mobile gender gap is understood and overcome, as digital literacy provides life-changing benefits to women, their families, communities and the economy.

Through Advocacy and Trainings for these women, we came up with an educational tutorial for learning which equips the African woman with the knowledge and skill needed to be able to participate in the Digital eco- system

 

The African Civic Tech Atlas is a work in progress (and a labour of love) for us but we may miss some initiative that needs updating. If your initiative needs to be updated on the database, kindly follow the instructions on the “Update Your Initiative” tab.
