Wasichana wa Afrika Summit
What is Wasichana wa Afrika Summit?
What we do?
Hosted as a 5-day residential workshop, the summit curates content designed to build girls knowledge and interest in fields of their interest. The summit combines thematic skills-building sessions, learning visits and rights education (with a specific focus on sexual reproductive health and rights) and exposes girls to a pool of mentors who have walked their journeys who can inspire them to pursue careers of their interest.
Why we do it?
Akili Dada acknowledges that a number of career fields remain pre-dominantly male-dominated with low participation form women. To overcome this barrier, the summit identifies a theme on an annual basis and identifies high potential adolescent girls with an interest in these tracks exposing them to mentors/role models and knowledge resources to enable them chart a clear path for their future.
