We are not only changing that but we are going a mile further by equipping girls with funding through our Miss.Africa Seed Fund so that they can pursue their dreams where they were told they couldn’t.
DotConnectAfrica through is CSR initiative Miss.Africa Program today celebrated the International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month by paying a tribute to women who have achieved different successes through out their lives.
Speaking through a press release on their website, DotConnectAfrica whose CEO and Founder Ms. Sophia Bekele themed this year, 2016 to be “Year of the Women“ said:
Today, a whole host of countries boast of being led by women. Africa has not been left behind. We have Ellen Johnson Sirleaf who has led Liberia for the last 10 years, Joyce Banda, the President of Malawi and Ameena Gurib of Mauritius. Governments across the Continent are realizing the need to have women’s voices represented in their governments. There is an increase in the level of women representation in governments across the Continent.
We need to tell girls from the moment they can talk that they can do anything they want; that nothing is beyond their reach
That is the message that DotConnectAfrica Trust preaches through our Miss.Africa Program. For a long time, girls have been told that they shouldn’t even consider any career in Science, Technology Engineering or Math. We are not only changing that but we are going a mile further by equipping girls with funding through our Miss.Africa Seed Fund so that they can pursue their dreams where they were told they couldn’t.
