Digital Transformation for Sustainable Development



Qodwa-Tech

Believing in the significance of building and developing human capital, Egypt’s Vision 2030 attaches high priority to Egyptian women, as a key pillar of community development, which will only be achieved through ensuring the effective participation of women in all work aspects, to build a strong nation.
 
Within this framework, Qodwa-Tech initiative was launched, under the auspices of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT). The initiative aims to contribute to the social and economic empowerment of girls and women in Egyptian governorates, especially in remote and marginalized areas, using ICT.
 
The initiative also focuses on representing women of the informal economy sector and the handicraft and agricultural industries sector, motivating them to become entrepreneurs and enhancing their capabilities in ICT and fintech. The aim is to achieve financial inclusion and digital transformation, through equality and equal opportunities, and to contribute to achieving Egypt’s Vision 2030, involving driving an inclusive economic growth.
