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.
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.
