Who We Are

Established in 2001, the African Centre for Women, Information and Communications Technology (ACWICT) is a Kenya-based ICT for Development Organization, whose mission is to promote women and youth access to and knowledge of ICTs as tools for social, economic and political advancement.  

ACWICT works to address challenges faced by high potential but disadvantaged women and youth in Kenya, providing solutions to improve their access to employment, education, health and leadership for better livelihoods

ACWICT’s programs are based on public/private sector partnerships, a strategic alliance that combines the resources and strengths of the government, private sector, foundations and non-profit organizations to achieve its goals and objectives.

ACWICT’s core competency is in deliberate creation of innovations in employability programs that target women and youth, harnessing the power of ICTs to deliver to five key sectors of the economy namely employability, education, health, agriculture and governance.  We pride in WHAT WORKS!
