ABOUT

The Women Pivoting Resilience In the Digital Economy in Africa (WomenPride.Africa) project equips women and girls to thrive in the digital economy  in Africa via three pivotal pillars:

  1. Meaningful Access and Adoption Advocacy
  2. In-Demand Digital (Literacy) Skills Training
  3. Urban-Rural Partnerships and Empowerment


By end of 2025, this initiative would have economically empowered 100,000  Women and Girls in Nigeria and Africa at large.
