IT for Change (www.ITforChange.net) is recruiting for an ambitious project that will work with high school girls in Bengaluru.

Over 3 years, we hope to make a dent in the way multiple cohorts of girl students experience their sense of self and exercise their agency, questioning disempowering ideologies and practices. We also wish to bring about systemic change in the school context so that the educational environment is able to recognise and address the routine cultures that prevent girls from actualising their potential. The idea is to build a STEM project for girls, with a difference - focusing on digital artefacts, tech labs and gender labs, to catalyse a feminist consciousness in curricular and co-curricular pursuits.
