Because of the vital role that education plays in permitting girls and women have access to ICT-related opportunities, it is vital to step up efforts and close the existing gap, faced by the African girl-child and women as a whole. The EAHRHI GITKP aims at giving the African girl-child an opportunity to not only acquire ICT-related skills, (computing, graphics design, web design, and hardware maintenance) but to also assist them set-up cluster IT related business after their training. A very special component of the project focuses on training girls living with HIV-AIDS and also accompanying them set up cluster IT related businesses. The pilot project is scheduled for Mbabane, Swaziland.
