Techamaka a women@godo initiative in partnership with eSkills4girls visited Crowns and Jewel’s school Ikorodu on Tuesday 13th of April 2021, to train 53 girls within the ages of 8-18.

The program which was geared to arouse the interest of the young girl in STEM-related careers had awesome attendance and a high level of participation.

According to Grace Oluchi the innovation and strategy lead, GoDo Hub, “the level of excitement and fulfillment from the girls after the training has reassured us that a digital inclusive Africa that is void of gender bias in STEM careers is possible”.

 

Greatness Olatunbi aged 10, Daniella Abbey 11, Nwafor Amaka Jessica 15, and Natasha Arotola 15 were awarded the best participant’s in the different sessions of the training.

Miss Greatness Olatunbi, a 10-year-old girl in basic 4 participated in the training and came out as one of the best participative trainees, shared her thought with us.

I will love to create more games using scratch. I enjoyed using a system by myself. Our trainers were friendly and willing to answer all our questions

Mrs. Nkechi Adeyemi the proprietress of Crowns and Jewels college Ikorodu shared her though with us.

“The eSkills4girls/Techamaka program is a very much welcomed idea. I’ve always stood for the development of the girl child. I’ve always advocated that there’s more to the girl child than just being groomed to be a housewife and a homemaker.

So for me, it is a very laudable project.

First, I was very thrilled at the massive attendance of the participants. Many parents were willing to allow their female children to come out for tech training.

I loved the training, the school is yet to recover from the massive impact that the training had on the school.

The teachers are still commending the ripple effects that we had as a school as a result of the program.
I sincerely commend eSkills4girls and Techamaka for this project that is transforming the girl child”.

She gladly appreciated GoDo Hub for visiting their school and promised to further enhance a coding and web development class for their students.
