Panel: Addressing the Gender Digital Divide — Innovation in Kamwenge
With the support of the Digital Development Partnership, administered by the World Bank, and the EQUALS Global Partnership Access Coalition, Trickle Up teamed up with AVSI Uganda to test two approaches for women’s digital literacy and inclusion. The cross-organizational team worked on the yearlong project with refugee and host community women in Kamwenge District, Uganda, already on their trajectory out of poverty.
On March 30, panelists discussed the creation of the digital literacy curriculum, the implementation of the project, and its impact.
