Technology for Gender Equality

Technology in the Bosawas has the potential to empower youth and prepare them for success in the future knowledge economy. In addition to its potential to improve educational achievements, full implementation of the Technology and Training for Quality and Equality project will also use the innovative technology as a tool to drive greater gender equality.

Improved quality of teacher instruction; increased availability of high-quality, gender-equitable educational resource materials; and amplification of the ability of young women and girls to make critical decisions regarding their own education and health are all critical pathways to gender equality in the Bosawas.

The goal is to provide female (and male) students access to resources on gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights, currently not available in this region. The goal is to improve outcomes for girls and young women in terms of their decision-making power, education, health and future opportunities.
