Set up by local Amadu Mohammad, the non-profit organization supports 250 girls between the age of six and 18, priming them for formal education through extracurricular classes in reading, math, poetry and information technology. Its goal is to break through social barriers and provide Nima with a generation of female role models, and so the group provides school funding to help the girls shape their own future.
Agyare’s coding class is well established. She has set up a mentor scheme as part of “Tech Needs Girls,” recruiting and training women at university to act as role models for her younger students in Nima.
