About this grant

This grant will continue to support Women’sNet, a women-led organization which provides training, capacity building, and skills development in information technology for women. Past support helped promote gender equality by developing women’s capacity to use information technology for advocacy and networking, empowering and strengthening women’s leadership at all levels, providing information technology training to girls, and also focusing on technology training for women in small businesses and community development, particularly those in poor, rural areas.
