One of the goals of the World Bank funded Digital Malawi project is to get more women in the innovation and technology sectors. As a way to achieve this, the Digital Malawi put a requirement that 60% of all trainees must be female. This is a requirement that continues to be met by constant questioning and scrutiny, as is always the relevance of affirmative action.
In an effort to empower young women and girls gain access to digital education and upskill their careers, Digi Savvy Africa and the Fiftfh Alley collaborated to conduct trainings and workshops from the 23r of March to the 25th of March 2022, in celebration of Women’s History Month, in an effort to curb the gender digital divide in Africa.

I made a commitment to myself that if I wasn’t travelling to further my studies early in the year, I would set up my personal office at Bien Corp Africa.

In light of the vision 2063, the Malawi NPC is organising a roundtable discussion between policymakers and youth, discussing and proposing solution; how youth issues can be better mainstreamed in relevant national policies and strategies.

When I was told I had to set up a tech hub, it was a no-brainer that I had to set up the hub in Mangochi District. My focus was on the Eastern region, for personal, and statistical reasons.
