Over the past few years, AkiraChix has been expanding it’s reach with the high school outreach program, working in schools such as Kenya High, among others. The goal is to ensure that we’re exposing as many young girls to opportunities within the technology industry as possible.
This past weekend, we had the pleasure of visiting Limuru Girls High school, to introduce our program to a group of very enthusiastic girls. We began our introductory session with design thinking led by Sharon Wangari. Sharon is an AkiraChix alumni, who works at the iHub UX lab as a user experience researcher and designer.
We are excited to be working at Limuru girls, and look forward to future activities with the students.
