BENEFITING: WAAW FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jul 28, 2014
WAAW Foundation launched its first Science, Technology, Engineering & Math Camp for 30 African girls in July 2013. These African girls aged 13 – 17 years from poor socio-economic background had the opportunity to experience a technically challenged 7 days camp on STEM lectures, experiments, tutorials, and activities. At the camp, these girls developed a new method of STEM learning, self-confidence & strength needed to pursue their own career goals. They were introduced to technologies that use locally available materials in their community and were also empowered about how the technologies that they were exploring could be used to contribute to the economic development of their community. It was an awesome experience for these girls, I could remember a group of girls came to meet me to extend the duration of the Camp because they wanted to continue learning. Visit our blog to read about one of 2013 participant's experience at the camp: http://waawfoundation.org/waawblog/2013/10/21/2013-stem-camp-participant-adegeye-adesola/
We are planning to hold two STEM camp sessions in two locations in Africa so as to increase the number of African girls from 30 to 90 in 2014. We believe Female educations with Technology Innovation are the most effective path to poverty alleviation in Africa. The demands for the camps are enormous; we can no longer sustain this program by ourselves, so we are asking you to please assist us to raise $2000 to purchase STEM Science kits for promoting African girls learning in our 2014 STEM Camp.
Please donate to make a difference in the life of an African girl and help end poverty in Africa through Female Education in STEM.
Thank You so much,
