Creating A Digital Generation​

At Apps and Girls, we believe that Tech is the reality of the future as we move deeper into the digital revolution, and entrepreneurship is a driving force. We work to break various barriers that hinder girls & young women in ICT such as a non-existent support system, lack of role models, and prevailing gender stereotypes by providing the alternative, a supportive path into the field of ICT, and a future in tech.

Our Programs

Coding Clubs

Weekly coding clubs in secondary schools empower girls with coding skills, inspiring them to pursue STEM courses, fostering digital literacy, and enabling them to develop innovative digital projects for successful careers.

Robotics Program

We have created a robotics program to encourage problem-solving, creative thinking, and a healthy sense of competition that drives innovation from students.

Jovia program

The Advanced IT and Entrepreneurship training for underprivileged girls and young women. The program targets girls and young women who could not afford higher education or dropped out of school due to socio-economic reasons in Tanzania.

Mentorship and Incubation

We provide mentorship and incubation both online and offline to emerging young female TECH entrepreneurs which includes access to indispensable resources (support for business plans, crowdfunding, access to potential investors/funders and mentoring) to support the successful launch and scale-up of their IT-based enterprises.

Tech & innovation Events

We host events like workshops, hackathons, Girls Code Camps, and the Girls Entrepreneurship Summit for secondary and high school girls in Tanzania. These gatherings aim to foster innovation, creativity, and problem-solving skills through technology, encouraging girls to lead healthy lives and use their skills for positive community impact.


“The program exceeded my expectations. I have to admit, I wasn't overly enthusiastic when I first applied, but attending it completely changed my perspective. The trainers are fantastic, and I'm genuinely excited to continue and further develop my project. This experience has been truly transformative, and I'm confident in the impact it will have on my journey ahead”
