TTOSICT

About this Project

The #TTOSICT project empowers women and girls in STEAM courses. The first of its kind in South Sudan, a country that has been affected with conflict and the issue of girls and women education is still a great challenge especially in Technology related  professions that are looked at as a male thing. The #TTOSICT project is not a novel idea but it is an innovation that is tailored to suit the context of South Sudan; aimed to encourage girls to stay in school through creative problem solving using technology and through the ICT challenges that come with prizes like school fees that supports the girls’ education especially those who might have dropped out as a result of poverty.

The Time To Shine ICT #TTOSICT project supported by UNDP South Sudan with funds from Sweden.
