Number of Women learning ICT in Puntland: I don’t think there are many females studying ICT in Garowe.
Women working in ICT: There is a small number of females working in the ICT sector in Garowe.
Challenge’s women and girls in ICT face: The challenges are many including:
Fewer ICT women.
A lack of understanding of ICT and seeing it as something that women cannot learn it and that ICT related jobs are only intended for men.
Girls who volunteer to encourage other girls to learn ICT.
Solutions: What can the government and private sector do:
Community outreach and ICT understanding.
Double the number of female students joining ICT.
Create jobs for girls who have studied ICT in the public and private sectors.
Double support for girls to encourage learning about ICT and improving their skills.
Vision for the future: I hope that God willing I will use the knowledge I have gained to benefit the people and the society I live in, especially Somali girls.
