In 2024, our goal is to train 10,000 girls in the following 10 countries, providing them with the skills and opportunities to excel in the tech sector:

1) Nigeria

With a rapidly growing tech ecosystem, particularly in Lagos, Nigeria offers abundant opportunities for tech training programs. 

2) Egypt

Egypt's growing tech ecosystem in cities like Cairo and Alexandria offers a vibrant environment for training programs.

3) Kenya

Nairobi, known as "Silicon Savannah," boasts a thriving tech community and is a prime location for tech education.

4) South Africa

South Africa's well-established tech sector, centered around cities like Cape Town and Johannesburg, provides a strong foundation for training initiatives.

5) Ghana

Accra, the capital of Ghana, is an emerging tech hub with a commitment to tech education.

Rwanda's active investment in technology and innovation makes it an attractive choice for AWIT initiatives.
