We work to promote gender diversity within the African digital ecosystem and drive inclusive innovations that address the specific needs of women and girls.
OUR RECENT WORK
Highlighting role models to inspire young African women and girls into STEM
Founding Women is a book which shares the inspiring entrepreneurship stories of 20 African women building businesses in technology
The book’s author and editor Eunice Baguma Ball, founder of ATBN said “African women in tech are not often visible particularly as we are so under-represented in the sector. Founding Women is about highlighting role models to show young women and girls across Africa , that technology is for them and that they too can become a technology entrepreneur if they want to."

Equipping the next generation of African women innovators
#HerFutureAfrica, is our social entrepreneurship programme that empowers young African women to participate in the digital economy and launch innovative businesses that improve the lives of women and girls.
To date we have supported 32 young women in Ghana and connected them with mentors from 11 countries. Programme participants have gone on to raise over $35,000 in funding to launch their innovative ventures which have impacted the lives of over 300 women and girls.

We advise and support development practioners and social innovators in developing innovative solutions to address the specific needs of women and girls.
Through an interactive sessions, participants are equipped with tools for using a ‘gender-lens’ approach to ensure that their businesses and organisations incorporate the women’s needs and concerns as part of their innovation processes, rather than as an afterthought.
We have facilitated Gender-Lens Innovation workshops at various platforms including Planet Earth Institute and Diaspora Doing Development conferences.
