Kazakhstan: Technovation Kazakhstan

  • Status


  • Location Almaty

In Kazakhstan, 21% of girls are subject to physical violence & 45% to psychological aggression. Strong stereotypes exist (Girls should cook) as well as a significant education inequality. Proposed project empowers girls (8-18y) to become leaders, creators & problem-solvers in business & technology fields. They work in teams, develop mobile apps & use AI instruments to address real-world problems through a digital local curriculum (Russian & Kazakh) involving girls in STEM (Almaty, Astana, Taldykorgan, Issyk, Talgar & Kaskelen cities). The course is created using existing free & effective STEM/business educational material from low funded government schools, then distributed among selected schools through direct agreement. It also includes offline master classes, and a competition or challenge among girls.
