Our Programmes

The Digital Generation Youth is a 2-year project aimed at developing new content, methods and activities to improve the quality of youth non-formal learning programmes. Through this project, organisations that work with young people in Nigeria, South Africa, Lithuania and the Netherlands will develop competences in delivering non-formal digital literacy and 21st Century skills education programmes to young people.

The Women’s Technology Empowerment Centre (W.TEC) is excited to present the 2020 edition of her She Creates Camp for girls. The award-winning girls STEAM – camp (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Maths) is taking the summer experience to the next level with a virtual camp which promises to be a memorable and impactful – fun learning experience like no other for your daughters in 2020.

The W.TEC Academy is an afterschool technology club, which presents technology in an engaging way, with the aim of attracting more girls to pursue science and technology careers. The clubs target girls, aged 10 to 17 years, who attend public schools in Nigeria. The students go through a practical and engaging curriculum comprised of programming with Alice and Greenfoot, Mobile Application Development, Computer Architecture, Networking, and Robotics.

This is the project column for all projects produced during the 4-week virtual for Girls:
  • Mobile Applications
  • Video Editing
  • Python Programming
  • Website Design
Past research projects include ‘Radio for Women’s Development: Examining the Relationship between Access and Impact’ (Case Study). This project was funded by the International Development Research Center (IDRC) and administered by Carleton University, Canada. The findings of this research project were a key resource in setting-up Nigeria’s first women-focused radio station – W FM 91.7.

Past trainees and participants of W.TEC programmes graduate into the W.TEC Alumna Network. This network provides ongoing learning and mentoring opportunities, activities such as annual reunions and access to dedicated member-only mailing lists and social media channels, where career and other development information will be disseminated.

The Staying Safe Online programme introduces and covers the foundation of digital security, where girls and young women learn strategies to stay safe online. This programme runs throughout the year
