Harnessing ICTs in Education for Girls and Women

Graduate Women International is hosting a panel discussion at the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) on 2 May 2016: Harnessing ICTs for greater access to education for women and girls.

The panel will explore the potential outreach and acceleration of education up to the highest levels to girls and women through ICTs, fostering a rights-based, gender equal approach to access to information and knowledge. GWI and partner Orange Device Group will present their joint initiative the Girls’ Choices Mobile App e-learning application currently being developed in Rwanda, and its goal to provide fun, accessible information to teenage girls on life  and education choices.
