Description

The Girls Summit (G.S) Is an initiative that conducts series of events for young girls to explore, showcase, engage and exhibit their tech-driven innovations in addressing community matters that range from gender, education, politics, leadership, entrepreneurship, environment, and many more. It is the first biggest annual event in Tanzania that brings together young girls from secondary and high schools to connect, learn, build innovations and solutions for community problems as well as compete for prizes.

The Girls Summit paves a way for young girls to create the world they want to live in through competitions whereby winning innovations are being supported and awarded prizes such as medals, laptops, and tablets. The summit focuses on young girls since they are active implementers of development initiatives in any community. We believe that if girls are equipped with the necessary tools, they can quickly roll out the wheel of development to the next level.

The Girls Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) is an annual tech-entrepreneurship event for girls in secondary and high school in Tanzania to build innovations and solutions for community problems, connect, learn and compete for prizes. The Summit will gather girls and young women from underprivileged and privileged backgrounds, in secondary schools.  This year’s summit will be the Apps and Girls’ first digital summit that is open to all young girls in East Africa.

These young women will learn and get inspired from powerful panels, speeches, project presentations, and awards. This year’s theme for the Girls Entrepreneurship Summit is Taking Charge in the Digital EconomyWe aspire to make this year’s summit a platform where female entrepreneurs share how they participate in the 4th Industrial revolution, and specifically, how they use technology to drive their businesses, innovations, and social projects
