This is a platform where We mentor, advocate and share opportunities for African women in STEM(Science,Technology,Engineering,Mathematics).We are targeting girls in Primary school, High school and undergraduate, who have not yet established an independent STEM carrier. We believe women can play an important role if given the full chance and information about STEM. We are committed to meeting young girls virtually or physically in order to empower and impact them.
