What barriers might hinder the success of your project? How do you plan to overcome them?
Internet and mobile penetration rates in Pakistan are approximately 20% and 60% respectively. Initially, we'll only be serving girls who've access to both or at least one of these technologies. With time, we hope to get more girls on board, especially those from remote areas, and not only develop their skills and empower them but also to teach them the constructive use of technology. It's a very simple but long-term project which possess the potential to actually change the world.
