Lack of information and technology in girls and youth

Technology 

Technology as a catalyst to every girls and youth livelihood and communities development.

In my community we have a big number of girls and youth who are lacking some technological skills to empower themselves, in their startups businesses, arts,skills, and talents  for them to follow innovative ideas and new trends in the market I WL  not forget the schools going youth for them to equip their research skill's for academic process. 

Girls are left behind into technology because our culture and practices made them believe they are not capable enough, so that made them don't  like to explore things technological, 

 

So my project I want to make a girls and youth cyber space which will work as resource center ,skills,art,and talent  development platform. The reason I see lot of my fellow sisters and brother having unique skills like : fine art, painting, singing, dancing, drawing,instrumentals,carpentry, plumbing,robotic to name a few , these youths most of them teaches themselves and they have the passion, and they can't go to formal education due to insufficiency.

So by having this center , we will make a program which can assistant them in step by step classes .and this will also help to sustain the economy because the results will make the youth work and produce rather than the youth always crying to the government.

In the project we will need 

 

Laptops,computers,tablets, cameras. This will help us also do a step by step  lessons,and motivation their skills we also got a lesson over pandemic covid-19 which suddenly closed schools and kids are idling and they end up doing bad practices which leads to teenage pregnancy, gender based violence,drugs abuse ,to mame a few.

 

Your help would be a great change to my community.
