The girls aged 15 to 17 from Kisumu, created an app, I-cut to end FGM.
The girls’ remarkable innovation is evidence that the continent’s future is in good hands.
They will be participating in this year’s International Technovation competition where they hope to win the prize money.
Every year, Technovation invites teams of girls aged 10 to 18 from all over the world to learn and apply the skills needed to solve real-world problems through technology. Technovation offers girls around the world the opportunity to learn the necessary skills to become tech entrepreneurs and leaders.
The girls learn to identify a problem in their community and create a mobile app solution to address that problem, and then learn how to communicate these ideas and translate them into a fully launched business.
Girls work in teams to build both a mobile app and a business plan to launch that app, supported by mentors and guided by Technovation’s curriculum.
In a conversation with Reuters one of the girls, Stacy Owino said, “FGM is a big problem affecting girls worldwide and it is a problem we want to solve.”
- The five girls call themselves the ‘Restorers’ because they want to “restore hope to hopeless girls”, said Synthia Otieno, one of the team.
