Creating Opportunities for
Women and Youth

What we do

Over the last two decades, the integration of Information and Technology has made the most significant impact on the global socio-economic scope with its applications in the different industries almost impossible to ignore. With this development some of the industries (Goods and Services) have moved to integrate the use of technology to increase consumer reach as well as improve the overall consumer experience. This has led to an increase in demand for content developers and more importantly computer programmers that are well equipped in developing e-solutions that can help grow SMEs and MSEs around the world.

 ACWICT recognises that Coding (whether mobile or web-based) has become an essential skill across the world, simply because computer science is a fundamental skill for all 21st century careers. Our Software Development and Innovation program implements innovation bootcamps that provide a platform for aspiring developers to gain coding/programming skills and links to emerging entrepreneurial opportunities within the growing tech space. We aim to create a community of young women coders who can provide sustainable technology-driven solutions to some of the challenges that communities experience in accessing services.
