​Teen Action​

Mombasa, Kenya, 2016, April 30

Teen Action is a teen-focused organization that gives teens in Kenya a platform to learn, develop & utilize their talents, while maximizing their potential in order to become the best versions of themselves. Our aim is to empower the teens to become young change-makers who can identify and create solutions to issues affecting them and their communities. With the world becoming a global village, technology is becoming crucial in order to survive in the daily dynamics of the world. In Kenya, there is a belief that ICT courses are meant for the boy child. This culture and attitude is limiting to the girl-child as ICT is a crucial field in development with regards to dynamism surrounding our today life As a result therefore, Teen Action is partnering with Swahili Hub and Design 2 Transform to hold an ICT Day for Girls Workshop, on 30th, April, 2016 to mentor, motivate, and empower, 13-19 yrs. old girls, with knowledge about ICT courses and careers. METHODOLOGY No. of Facilitators:10 No. of Teen girls: 200 The teens will be split into 10groups for effectiveness. Items to be used: Manilla papers, Felt pens, Laptops and Projectors. Techniques to be used: Motivation talk, Educational games, Sharing Experiences, Case Studies, Inspiration and ICT opportunities for each girl in the group For more information contact: teenaction.co.ke@gmail.com
