More About Us

Women In Technology Uganda (WITU) started in 2011 and was registered in Uganda as a non profit in 2012. WITU is empowering young women in Technology and Business by building capacity through training, mentoring and networking.

In February 2014, we opened  the First women focused tech hub in Uganda called the WITU Hub. We are located in Kamwokya on Plot 18 Kanjokya street.

So far we have trained 100+ young women in Tech and Business and the first intake of school dropouts of about 74 ladies is set to graduate on Friday 27th June 2014.

Vision: 

To Zero the Technological Gender Gap

Mission: 

To support women’s local capacity building and skills development in Technology and Business in Uganda through training, mentor-ship, networking and knowledge sharing in order to drive economic and sustainable development

Mentor
We encourage women who are doing something in the field of tech-preneurship to come up and talk about what they are doing and inspire other ladies who are pursing a similar career. This is a platform for women to come up and speak to fellow women to encourage, inspire and mentor them.

Volunteer
We are grateful to those who are able to give their time and expertise to our cause. If you would like to volunteer with us, please get in touch as there are various areas in which to you can volunteer.
