As Ntha Foundation – we are proud to be youth as well as female-founded and female-led. We are equally always elated to have 60% of our staff as women.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, Ntha Foundation would like to highlight and celebrate the women in the organisation. At @NthaFoundation, we are intentional about closing the digital divide, but even more intentional about ensuring women are meaningfully engaged in the #TechSector.
Women’s History Month is celebrated annually in March. It started as Women’s Day, which was celebrated on Feb. 28, 1909, by a group of Manhattan socialists and suffragists in honor of the one-year anniversary of the garment strike led by the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union.
