We live in the digital age. Without the knowledge and skills of digital technology, many people are left behind, unable to fulfil their potential in life.
Girls are especially vulnerable to this as digital expertise is usually seen as the preserve of boys and men.
IT is one of the most promising economic sectors in Ukraine, however, only 14.3% of women work in the IT sector. The gender gap is more profound in disadvantaged communities where girls have limited access to quality education in computer science.
