  1. Thanks a lot for this opportunity , is there a possibility that ths program will be expanded soon to include women from mauritania ?

  2. We are so grateful for all the wonderful support for our program, and for the enthusiastic interest from women (and girls!) all over the world. Though we have received similar inquiries from amazing women from Tanzania and other non-program countries, we regret that at this time, our program is only able to accommodate participants from the 16 program countries.

    However, we are always trying our hardest to expand our program to include women from other countries, including Tanzania, and we look forward to the possibility of spreading our work and growing our community globally. Please continue to follow us and check our website periodically for news and program updates.

    Thanks!

  4. This is a great opportunity for women in general and African women in particular…It gives us an avenue where women can learn and share experiences in the Technology and Science fields and we can use our ideas to change the world, especially that of women..MOst importantly we can use this avenue to mentor girls to go into science and technology, a field in which women are often discriminated against of out-right discouraged from getting into! KUDOS TECHWOMEN!!
