DIGITAL PLAYBOOK AFRICA

Image_202110101423

ABOUT:
For young women who do not have access to the internet, Digital Playbook Africa offers digital literacy training, internet access aid and hardware distribution to close the gender gap in internet usage and access. Unlike many NGOs and nonprofits, Digital Playbook Africa is owned and operated by women who grew up in the marginalized communities we serve and understand the community challenges firsthand.

Now more than ever, as COVID-19 increases Kenya’s reliance on digital services, men will benefit disproportionately to women since they will have greater access to life-saving information. Women and girls not having access to the wealth of information the internet affords will be left behind, widening existing gender inequalities. The steps Digital Playbook Africa and its community make now will have major impacts on the stabilization and resilience of communities, especially women and girls.

OPPORTUNITY:
As a self-starting non profit, Digital Playbook Africa is run by the people who are dedicated to its mission. We are seeking individuals who passionate about any of the following: GENDER DIVIDE IN DIGITAL LITERACY, EMPOWERING GIRLS AND WOMEN THROUGH EDUCATION, AND AFRICA/KENYA, or a combination of all three! If you have experience or a willingness to learn in: creating tech programs for girls and women in rural Kenya, research and community development, or fundraising, please reach out.

Mission Statement

Founded in 2020, Digital Playbook Africa is a 501 (c)(3) certified social impact organization that provides digital literacy training programs for girls and women in rural Kenya in effort to bridge the gender gap in internet usage and access.

Description

Today, digital technology flows through all aspects of life, fundamentally shaping how we live, learn, work and communicate. While technology opens the door to many opportunities to improve our lives and connect with the world, it can also further marginalize people who lack literacy skills to navigate them.
Without digital literacy skills, women are unable to benefit from all the resources the internet affords, including but not limited to job opportunities, health information and educational services--all things that could further boost their overall livelihood, well-being and economic activity.
