Africa Agility Girls in Tech Initiative October 2022

Africa Agility, as a goal to empower 500,000 Africa female youths with tech & Agile skills and creating new paths for jobs in the technology industry.

Our team values initiatives that can give these youngsters space and resources to work on tech-related abilities and ensure they are qualified for jobs in the technology industry, while also maximizing our partnerships to provide them with internships, jobs and entrepreneurship opportunities.
