PROBLEM: Why family encourage boys to take the risk and girls not to be too ambitions? On the past tree years work as education representative, I had the opportunity to interact with over 5000 students from Angola and what bother me is the huge gap between boys and girls in Technical Courses, specially on Computing and Sciences. It come from a long historical process that involve, family, teachers, police makers and the entire community.
Globally, 59% of girls are illiteracy. Compared to other continents, African demography projection girl´s birth are increasing by 30% between 2015 to 2030. In Angola, only 83 girls compared to 100 boys, have access to education, what give us a gap 13 girls out of school for every 100 boys. Add to that the digital literacy gap.
