Taungana seeks to create a supportive ecosystem that encourages sustained female student engagement in STEM.
We achieve our goals in the following ways:
1. Fellowship Program: A high school fellowship that is initiated by the flagship STEM Expo, a one week multi-industry immersion and entrepreneurship program. Ambassadors (rural high school girls) are supported with a mentor network and with ongoing outreach events in their communities.
2. Networking platform: An online community for STEM practice and thought leaders that fosters solutions to industry challenges.
3. Business intelligence: Data from rural Africa is analysed to better understand STEM engagement barriers enabling targeted interventions and informing sustainable resource strategies for the movement.
