About a third of the world’s population has never used the internet; most are women and girls who are disconnected from learning, careers and independence – especially during crises. By giving this gift, you’ll help young women access fundamental tech and online skills to keep pace, create businesses and succeed in today’s rapidly changing world. Your gift can set up development centres that are equipped with tech tools and offer training in digital literacy, computer programs, internet use and more. It will also teach the use of mobile wallets and digitization of financial services like village savings and loans associations – all of which help empower women to securely store, easily track and quickly withdraw funds so they can be more self-reliant.
