TAPintoTech’s Project TAPAfrica, is a Technology Access Program (TAP) that aims to teach technical knowledge to students in Africa, specifically targeting girls interested in STEM. We hope to execute a range of initiatives such as online coding classes, a technology bootcamp and an accreditation course. Furthermore, we hope to be able to provide necessary infrastructure to enable online education.
Today, women in Africa contribute to just 33% of the continent’s GDP despite being 52% of the population.Through project ‘Up-Skill Africa’ we will impart on large numbers of schoolgirls the skills needed to help diversify their economies.
We aim to access 300 schoolgirls within central and west Africa within our first three years of operation before expanding operations to cater to up to 1000 girls within 5 years.
We will work with a range of private and public partners to ensure impact through the TAPAfrica initiative and implement a range of impact metrics to advise our approach. TAPintoTech is also committed to helping to provide infrastructure and educational resources to deprived areas.
