NextGen TechCamp Nairobi


Participants from

Cameroon; Kenya; Nigeria; Rwanda; Sierra Leone; South Africa; Zimbabwe


Originating from former President Barack Obama’s 2009 call for a “New Beginning” between the U.S. and the Muslim world with a focus on increased engagement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), ECA’s TechWomen (TW) and TechGirls (TG) programs celebrate their 10-year anniversary with three TechCamps. These TechCamps will build on pre-existing efforts to engage and empower local tech communities around the world by leveraging the expertise of TW and TG alumnae as participants, trainers and mentors. This TechCamp will strengthen civil society and increase economic empowerment, inclusion, innovation and prosperity among women by bringing together local, international, and American experts and trainers to help participants develop new models of ecopreneurship – sustainable entrepreneurship that is committed to environmental protection and conservation.
