Intel® She Will Connect is an initiative of Intel Corporation to bridge the Internet’s gender gap by connecting millions of girls and women to opportunities through technology. By partnering with various female focused NGOs across the continent, its goal is to reach 5 million young women in Africa by 2020. The program offers an innovative combination of digital literacy training, an online peer network and gender-relevant content to females which will afford them the opportunity of acquiring or improving their digital literacy skills and expanding their understanding and use of technology.

      It is not necessary to post a comment, if you don’t have anything to say in relative to her amazing work. Titi is so gifted beyond her looks and what she puts on does not define her but the quality of her work. The spoken word, inspiring,powerful ,Weighty and when I look at her all i see is the gift not the clothing nor the look. #innerbeauty.
