REVAMP Africa Organises a 6-day SheTech Boot Camp for Girls and Ladies

REVAMP Africa concluded a The She-Tech Bootcamp, a 6-day intensive digital and life skills training for young girls and ladies (ages 13-25).

Bridging the Gender Gap in Tech, Reducing Unemployment and Eradicating Poverty

Several researches have proven that there is a huge fallback in technology education in Nigeria, especially among the female gender. This inequality has led to unfavourable employment opportunities, financial incapacitation, deprived rights, forced early marriages, lowered self-esteem, to mention a few for young girls and women. 

The average Nigerian female youth lives with too much dependence for survival. 

In our quest to urgently bridge this gap of females in tech, eradicate poverty, and create room for economic growth in Nigeria, we kicked off the SHE-TECH BOOTCAMP, a digital and life skill training program for female youths.

The She-Tech Bootcamp is an initiative of our Teens Youths Enterprise Support Programme (TYESP) designed to empower young girls and women with digital and life skills, to enable them start up small businesses, become financially sustainable or build a career in tech.

High Impact Training Sessions

The facilitators who are experts in their different various fields were present (both onsite and online) to educate and equip the participants. They spent extensive hours giving hands-on practical sessions and theoretical insights on the skills. 

Each facilitator brought dimensions that contributed immensely to our overall objectives. If we conclude our classes in four words,, it would be – intensive, fun-filled, relatable and practical!

Immediate Impact...

Few days into the programme, the participants designed their first websites, created business pages for personal use and for clients. They designed their business logos for brand identity! In addition to the technical training, there was evidence of a paradigm shift with respect to their approach to life, career and the tech space!

“The Boot Camp experience was amazing. I had little knowledge about tech before coming to the program. The fact that I actually built a website for the first time within just a week of training was everything for me.’’
