Empowering young women to achieve sustainable development goals has been an important factor to affect the nation, since a lot of women have contributed immensely to the development of the country.
In this regard, ‘GIRLS IN STEM’ is a project, which happens to be a partnership between Prebbie Foundation headed by Kafui Prebbie, the Chief Executive Officer of TECHAiDE and Projects Director at Implementers and Project BRAVE(Braveconnect), headed by Tracy Sarkcess, the better-half of Ghanaian decorated rapper, Sarkodie.
The partnership is geared towards empowering young women through the STEM education, to ultimately contribute to achievable sustainable development goals.
The team in a week delivered some training for some selected girls from some schools within the Ledzekoku Municipality in Accra.
In the open address, Tracy urged the students to make the best out of the training since it will help open doors for them;
“This project which is being managed by Implementers and the Prebbie Foundation, making it possible for you pretty young ladies here to have access to such knowledge, and I hope that you would take this opportunity and make something out of it. You will never know where this will take you, but maybe this will be a starting career for you. You should see it as an opportunity that where you otherwise not been able to have access to, since you have access to it, make the best of it.”
Tracy Owusu Addo believes careers in Ghana regarding Technology and ICT may not be seriously taken, but people are making so much money from it outside Ghana.
“Here in Ghana unfortunately we won’t take the careers in Technology and ICT seriously, but outside you can make so much money, especially been a woman. There are not so many young women who are going into these careers, mostly male dominated. So, I want you to make the best out of this training to make a change for yourself, your family and friends.”
Prebbie Foundation in collaboration with Braveconnect are training these pretty young ladies, to make a change for themselves, and impact massively to the achievement of the sustainable development goals in the country.
