In partnership with the French Embassy, our female photographers have been afforded the opportunity to document the PISCCA project in various parts of the country.
On 8th March 2022, the Photographer’s Association of Kenya visited Lakehub – a community of creatives, programmers, hackers, designers & entrepreneurs in the western region of Kenya that creates tech solutions as well as a culture of innovation and collaborative learning environment for women sponsored by the French Embassy.
The Photographer’s Association of Kenya have found out that due to the Innovative Projects from Civil Societies and Coalitions of Actors (PISCCA) program, a significant increase in women participating in technology has been recorded between 2021 and 2022 because of the provided incentives including; fully-funded scholarships and mentorship to girls and women in order to learn technological skills and come up with creative solutions to solve community problems.
With rising demand for technology, there is a significant need for women to be better supported in pursuing a career in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
By capturing this project through our lenses, we have been greatly inspired, especially by the empowerment of women challenging the status quo and breaking the bias that women face on a daily basis.
