At the 2015 Transform Africa Summit in October, TechWomen fellows reunited to help develop the YouthMobile Initiative project “Searching for Martha.” The project aims to empower African women entrepreneurs to offer training to young African girls to develop, sell and promote mobile apps targeting the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and to create employment opportunities. “It is good to know that the Techwomen network cuts across countries, and we remain united toward a common course, which is empowering women in STEM,” Sylvia Mukasa, a 2014 fellow from Kenya, said. “We continue to tap into each other’s networks to make things work. We had a lot to reminisce about from our experiences in the TechWomen program. (Though) we were from different years, we felt like family instantly.”
