making gender equity a reality

Our Programs

Stepping Up for a Lift!

Despite significant contributions that women have made to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), women still lag behind men globally in terms of their representation and participation in these male-dominated fields.

In Africa, from a young age, girls are still stereotypically perceived to be more inclined to less technical subjects to fulfill more traditional roles even after the completion of a university degree. Around the world, girls grow up thinking they are not that good in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics despite studies that show that girls and boys perform similarly in these subjects.

We realized that girls need stronger, positive STEM role model to increase their participation in STEM studies. We are working to promote lifelong education, to improve the status of women and girls and to enable women to effect positive change for a sustainable world.
