Amazing Gashora Girls Academy, Rwanda

P1130874

The TechWomen delegation spent yesterday at the amazing Gashora Girls Academy (GGAST) in Rwanda’s Eastern Province of Bugesera, about an hour from the capital of Kigali. We learned about these talented and intelligent girls’ education, lives, and hopes for college and leadership in Rwanda. The TechWomen mentors presented to several hundred girls – discussions on careers in technology, engineering, and science, plus workshops on interviewing, blogging, software application development and other geeky subjects. I worked with other TechWomen to present two sessions of the Blogging and Web Research Workshop. We also brought English-language books by and about women for the school library.  I will be posting the list of blogs that the girls promised to write as guests here on Katysblog. It was an inspiring day with remarkable young women.
