Thank you for your generosity
And they are motivated
We remain committed and focused
You Can Help Too!
We’re always looking for new volunteers, contributors, benefactors and all donations are welcome .
We design programs with a central goal of shifting the focus of the conversation about the digital divide to a question of technological access and to present girls and youth with an opportunity to participate, to develop technical competencies and social skills needed for full involvement in the new 21st century job market and tertiary level.
Our goal is to address unequal access to the opportunities, experiences, skills, and knowledge that will prepare youth for full participation in the world of the 21st century. Many of our students will be entering the workforce upon completing high school. Girlhype feels that the gap between schoolwork and the world of work must be bridged more effectively than it has been in the past. Our youth must be better prepared for employment.
Our main Program is “Innovation in the Classroom” project, to Bring Passions of Scientists and Engineers and ICT specialist into Classrooms: We use Postgraduate Student volunteering initiative to improve STEM education. The partnering Institutions namely UCT and CPUT provide matching intern credit for volunteer student hours.
We also recruit IT, Scientist and engineer retirees for our “Innovation in the Classroom” project. The aim of this is to have high-impact collaborations with teachers and previously disadvantaged students mainly girls on laboratory projects in high schools, with the aim of reaching a run-rate of 300 life scientists assisting in schools over five years. Girlhype’s aim is to use these retirees and student volunteers’ human resources, expertise, and their enthusiasm to the task of strengthening South Africa’s leadership in the 21st century by improving education in science, technology, engineering and math.”
