19 January 2017 - UNICEF, in partnership with the national Department of Education, established the TechnoGirls mentorship programme in 2005. This initiative identifies high school girls between the ages of 15 and 18 who are from disadvantaged communities (rural and urban), and who are doing well academically. Through a mentorship system, the girls are guided to make informed career choices, with an emphasis on science, technology and engineering.
