There is no uncertainty that ICT can catalyze growth for girls and women everywhere; and by extension, for wider socio-economic progress. The Internet is a great enabler, creating unprecedented opportunities for female entrepreneurs to enter global markets for the first time, and allowing them to scale their means of livelihood. ICT can give women access to basic needs such as healthcare and education. Civil society organisations can play a pivotal role by investing in community-oriented training and delivering a wide range of ICT services to meet these needs. Leveraging on ICT to promote the empowerment of women means creating a wholesome ecosystem for innovation and opportunity for thriving.
