Tech2Empower Peru: Girls' education & women's entrepreneurship

Women are leading the fight every day for rights and equality, for themselves, the next generation, and for their communities. They are working to advance girls' education and end child marriage and violence against women. They are fighting for equal access to healthcare, political participation and economic opportunity. They are starting new businesses, supporting their families and creating jobs.

Tech2Empower Peru was a unique opportunity to learn with women that are leading change in their communities, contribute to girls' education, engage with and advise local women entrepreneurs, all while making new friends, building professional networks and having fun!

Our group of volunteer Advisors stayed in Cusco, the historic capital of the Inca Empire and World Heritage Site where we learned about Peru's history and modern day culture and society, all with a feminist lens.

We met local women entrepreneurs, from artisans to small business owners and tech startup founders, and formed teams to coach and co-create solutions to build and grow their businesses. 

At Chicuchas Wasi, a local school for indigenous girls, we provided tech training for teachers, and share STEM activities with the students. And during our Tech and Career Fair, co-hosted by GAL, we engaged in coaching and mentoring with young women and girls, while also learning about their challenges, dreams and aspirations. Meet our amazing team of volunteer Advisors below!
