Ms. Geek GH

Empowering Girls or Women through ICT

There used to be a general perception that science studies were a preserve for boys. But gradually, over the last two decades that perception is slowly changing, and the Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation is putting in effort to help change that mindset by providing opportunities for Ghanaian girls to show that it is not all about beauty but also about thinking ability, tenacity and focus” 

Ms Geek Africa

Competion 2023

As part of the Ms. Geek Africa requirement, all Ms. Geek winners of Smart Africa Alliance member states are to participate in the Ms. Geek Africa competition each year. However, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Ms. Geek Africa was temporarily postponed until 2023. In that year, Miss Selasi Ama Domi-Kuwonu represented Ghana in the Ms. Geek Africa competition held on the sidelines of the Transform Africa Summit in Zimbabwe in 2023.

Miss Selasi Ama Domi-Kuwonu, after a keen contest with her contemporaries, won and is the current 2023 Ms. Geek Africa Champion. Her ICT solution “KASA CASH” is an offline system that enables the unlettered, physically challenged, unserved, and underserved communities to effortlessly perform financial services on their phones without third-party assistance.

The Ministry has launched the 2024 Ms. Geek Ghana contest and is requesting for innovative, scalable and feasible ICT solutions from young ladies between the ages of 13 to 21 across the country. The deadline for the application is on 18th July 2024.

Fifteen (15) shortlisted applications will be taken through a master class to fine-tune their projects. There will be a grand finale where all contestants will present their projects to a panel for a winner to be selected. The winner will be groomed to represent Ghana at the Ms. Geek Africa Contest, which will be held during the Transform Africa Summit, Nairobi, Kenya in August 2024, and will receive cash prizes, business support, and more.

It is expected that the Initiative will bridge the digital gender divide and encourage girls to pursue STEM-related courses

The Smart Africa Alliance has instituted the Ms. Geek Africa competition and encourages its Member States to adopt the Initiative. The competition seeks to encourage young women to develop ICT solutions to solve contemporary socioeconomic challenges.

The Ms. Geek competition is as a result of the efforts of Girls in ICT Rwanda, a group of Rwandan women; young and old, who are passionate about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). They came together in 2014 to organize Ms. Geek Rwanda to inspire more girls to join STEM.

The Ms. Geek Rwanda was adopted by the Smart Africa Alliance to give it an African feel and renamed Ms. Geek Africa in 2017. Ghana enthusiastically adopted this initiative and held its inaugural Ms. Geek Ghana contest in 2019. The competition aimed to support women in technology fostering innovative solutions to real-world problems. Miss Selasi Ama Domi-Kuwonu a student at the Cape Coast University emerged winner and was crowned Ms. Geek Ghana in 2019.
