Regions in conflicted countries experience a lot of challenges and therefore lag behind technologically, economically, socially and politically. We believe that there are plenty of solutions out there that can help fill the gaps.
Women for Women International(WfWI),is trying to address some of these needs in countries like Nigeria,Rwanda,South Sudan,DRC,Bosnia and Herzegovina. Being a non-governmental humanitarian organization, we give moral and practical support to women in the most marginalized areas helping them to earn and save money, improve their health and well-being, influence decisions in their homes and community and connect to networks for support. Through our various initiatives we enable them to create the change they want to see.
We have vocational skills that we have taught our women, examples, basket weaving, basic mathematics, poultry and others. We are now looking for tech ideas and solutions that can help us do what we do better and are calling upon you, the tech community in Kenya, to help. Join us at the iHub and share your insights, product and/or ideas for tech that can help us further our cause in women empowerment and societal development.
