"We look forward to seeing all these talented girls utilise the ICT hub and other associated facilities to create solutions and innovations that will transform Ghana."

The training of the girls in ICT is aimed at giving the girls the opportunity to explore the world of technology, through the creation of websites, computer games, interactive arts, mobile apps and animation stories, using various programming languages.
