july 2019: Bridging the Digital Gender Divide in Nigeria
Female Technology Entrepreneurial Workshop
We realize the importance of increasing the role of women from the Niger Delta in technology. PGG and its local partners have designed an eight week computer programming and coding course for 35 need-based female technical students from Rivers, Delta, and Bayelsa states. Upon completion of the workshop, PGG and its partners will conduct a four day small business course on how to market the participants' services to Nigerian businesses.
Women and girls are nearly 15 percent less likely to be online than men worldwide. But experts say this digital gender divide can be bridged through education, ensuring access and improving skills.
