At the Ntha Foundation, we celebrate and believe in the unlimited capabilities of women to achieve anything that they set their minds to.
In honour of International Women’s Day 2022, we take a look back at how the Foundation has tried to achieve equal access to information and technology without bias or stereotypes of what is appropriate for women and what is not.
To begin, under Digi Savvy Africa, the Ntha Foundation has developed digital skills courses for young girls and women to advance their knowledge and expertise in digital technology. In both our cohorts, we had a registration of up to 60% young girls and women who enrolled for classes and graduated.
Additionally, the Ntha Foundation, under Music4Malawi has led and opened up dialogue about what it means to be a woman in the music industry in Malawi, a topic which was thouroughly covered at the Bants2Business:WomenInMusic Edition.
Furthermore, the Ntha Foundation has given spotlight to women in STEM, Fashion, and Finance – highlighting their personal and professional journey’s to becoming who they are and influencing other young people to shoot for the stars – proving, once again, that women belong to any career field they choose to focus in.
Therefore, in commemoration of IWD2022 the Ntha Foundation with funding from the World Bank through the Public Private Partnership Commission is setting up workshops at the Kwathu Centre that will focus on; International Women’s Day background, the digital divide, social media management, influencer marketing, and personal branding and financial inclusion.
The theme for this years International Women’s Day is “Break the Bias” and as always, the Ntha Foundation is focusing on pushing women to be forefront in various digital spaces to bridge the digital divide and become digital entrepreneurs with access to information and educational tools through the Free digital skills workshop.
