LAHORE (PR): Intel Corporation recently announced ‘She Will Connect’, a new programme that commits to expanding digital literacy skills to young women in developing countries. Intel will begin the initiative in Africa, where the gender gap is the greatest, by aiming to reach 5 million women and reduce the gender gap by 50 per cent. To achieve this, Intel will work with a diverse set of partners including global and local NGOs and governments.
Findings from the groundbreaking “Women and the Web” report released by Intel in Jan revealed concrete data on the enormous Internet gender gap in the developing world and the social and economic benefits of securing Internet access for women.
