UWAT

BACKGROUND

Unlocking Women and Technology (UWAT) is a Flagship Program of iSpace Foundation, a
Tech and innovative hub based in Accra. UWAT aims at empowering women to dominate the
tech industry by equipping them with tech and creative skills, giving them the opportunity to
learn how to code and startup their own businesses. We provide trainings on Web Application,
Mobile Application, Business Development trainings and funds for women to kick start their
businesses.
The importance of technology cannot be overemphasised, hence iSpace has seen the need to
target women nationwide to provide this same opportunity with the support from our funders.

women to web development and many more opportunities.
