At Apps and Girls, we believe that Tech is the reality of the future and we work to break various barriers such as a non-existent support system, lack of role models, and prevailing gender stereotypes that hinder young people from accessing and creating opportunities in the 4th Industrial revolution that is driven by STEM by providing the alternative, a supportive path into the field of ICT and a future in tech.
