International Women's Day 2023

This International Women’s Day, help us give women and girls equal access to digital technology and online skills training.

Why Female Education?

For women and girls, access to quality education can change everything.

This International Women’s Day, we are fundraising to give the women and girls in our programmes equal access to digital technology, and the skills to navigate the online world.

This year’s International Women’s Day theme is DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality.

Patterns of gender inequality in education are replicated in the digital world. Globally, men are over 20% more likely to be online than women, rising to as much as 50% more in developing countries, according to a 2021 report. This has a direct impact on a woman’s ability to develop a successful career as she ages into adulthood. Digital literacy has been shown to result in higher earning potential, and greater job opportunities.

WONDER supports women and girls’ digital inclusion in many different ways. Over the years, we have:

Here’s what your donation can achieve:

    • Give students in Côte d’Ivoire printers and desktop computers, so they can print the learning material and projects for their course
    • Train students in Côte d’Ivoire on e-commerce, and help them develop their skills in entrepreneurship 
    • Fund scholarships for women in Guatemala, so they can attend a vocational training course specialising in IT and social networks 
    • Provide teachers with digital training, so they can communicate with students and have access to online learning tools

Access to education changes everything
