#InternationalWomensDay2020 #eachforequal #iwd2020 #nazaagapefoundation #jostechgirls #nhubfoundation #changemakers #loretajugu #prayernwagbosoikegwuonu Naza Agape Foundation entered into Partnership with Jos Tech Girls to educate girls on the use and need of technology; And the importance of leveraging on its advantages.

We believe that technology/science shouldn't be left for the male gender alone. Inclusion is necessary

On Monday, 9th March 2020, Naza Agape Foundation and Jos Tech Girls along side volunteers form @nhubfoundation took time to celebrate women in technology. This is in line with the international women's day  celebration. #internationalwomensday2020.  We taught, shared and encouraged students at the COCIN SECONDARY SCHOOL, RANKYENG, Plateau state.

We encouraged the students not to be imitated by words like "it's a man's world". We ensured that they understood that there's no industry in the world that a woman can not work. In fact a woman can do much more than the society expects of her.

To spice up the event, free sanitary pads were shared to the students.

Some of our supporters are @nhubfoundation @molpednigeria @molped.maroc  #womenintech # #inclusionanddiversity

Hello, Prayer,

Welcome to World Pulse! What a joy that a new voice from Nigeria is rising up!

Congratulations on your successful event! Yes, access to technology shouldn't be limited to men. Great job, dear! I love the free sanitary pads you've distributed.

We hope to know more about you. Please keep sharing your journey with us. I'm curious how did you learn about World Pulse?

We're happy you are here! Welcome again to our growing sisterhood! Happy Women's Day (because everyday is International Women's Day on World Pulse)!

Thank you so much dear Karen, it is a great privilege being part of this amazing platform which offers a voice to women and their works.

I got to know about this beautiful platform through one of my mentors @Keturah Shammah founder Girls Education Mission International. She's one of the world pulse Ambassadors in Nigeria.

I look for to impacting more lives and sharing my beautiful story with everyone most especially you through this platform.
Yes everyday is International Women's Day.

Lots of love and hugs Sis

This is outstanding! Congratulations and bravo on the important change you are making in the lives of the girls and women you are teaching and connecting with. Even here in the United States, gender inequality is an everyday reality in the technology industry. My heart leaps with joy at the idea there are people lifting these girls up with the message that there is nothing they cannot achieve.

Thank you so much dear Lucy for the encouragement,
Love always

Hi Prayer,Thank you for sharing your story. I love the encouragement and support that you are giving to girls in technology.

Not only can women work in all industries, but the future also belongs to young women like the ones you are touching.
With the right education, and enabling environment, peace and security, there is nothing that women cannot achieve.
Keep up the good work.

Thank you so much Kabahenda for such kind words of encouragement
