DreamOval Foundation launched a programme called Females in Technology to provide sixty girls from two communities in Accra, Ghana with access to STEM training. The main objective of this initiative is to develop the girls’s interest in pursuing science-related careers in the future.

Participants of the programme will learn how to use different tools to develop websites and applications. These skills are meant to empower the girls to become eligible for multiple future opportunities that require knowledge in different technology skills.

According to Mr. Francis Ahene Affoh, vice-president of the DreamOval Foundation, “Girls’ empowerment is something that we seek to advance and if we fail to address girls’ differentiated needs and aspirations, a generation will be lost.”
