The objective of the initiative is to encourage girls from public and private schools and from marginalized communities to experience the capabilities of IT Information Technology and STEM subjects Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics. This would provide the girls with the opportunity to select STEM fields as career choices; to promote essential technology skills for today's global economy; to improve girls self-esteem through learning by using hands-on activities; and to bridge the gender gap in technology-related fields by bringing awareness to girl students on the importance of ICT and the opportunities it can offer. Our aim is also to break the cultural stereotypes of women in STEM by exposing young girls to inspiring role models and success stories from Lebanon and to strengthen the bonds within society through fostering volunteering and the spirit of giving back to the society. The selection of the age bracket of 15 years is crucial to provide girls with the exposure needed to STEM before they embark on their long term career decisions. The girls will gain the confidence needed to know that STEM careers are accessible to them.
