3 years down the line of AkiraChix activities, we’ve dived into mentoring high school girls, and are now expanding that horizon to young girls in primary school. Remember us visiting the Kibera School for girls a few weeks back? Well, last Friday, they returned the favor :).
AkiraChix organized for girls in 3rd and 4th grade to come over to the building that oozes technology from top to bottom: Bishop Magua Centre.First stop was the new AkiraChix training program class venue.The Kibera students got to see what the training program students were learning at that time. It was amazing to see two different generations of future women in tech interacting with each other.
During our last visit to Kibera, we talked alot about what’s been happening in the tech space, and presented opportunities available for the girls in future, but felt that it would only be fitting to have these students see for themselves, and get to interact with the different tech companies and tech leaders in Nairobi.
AkiraChix is grateful to the entire iHub and tech fraternity within Bishop Magua for their warm and welcome response to the girls visit, despite being ambushed, and for allowing the girls to interact with them. The AkiraChix team as well as the Kibera School for Girls students and faculty are extremely grateful :).
Photos from the visit will be made available soon.
