In Nairobi: InDrive and Elizabeth Mwangi Celebrate UN's Girl Child Day

InDrive in partnership with the 2023 Aurora Tech Award Winner, Elizabeth Mwangi, recently celebrated the UN’s International Day of the Girl Child at Nairobi’s St. Aloysius Gonzaga School.

This event marked a powerful celebration of the potential of girls worldwide as drivers of change.

Under the UN’s theme for this year, “Digital Generation,” the focus was on promoting digital inclusion and literacy as tools to unlock opportunities for girls in education, employment, and leadership.

Elizabeth Mwangi embodies this theme through her innovative startup, which connects cleaners from Nairobi’s slums to job opportunities, addressing social challenges through technology.

She emphasized during the event, “Empowerment through technology isn’t just about connectivity; it’s about connecting with purpose… When we combine innovation with intention, we can transform communities from the inside out.

Furthermore, during the event, Elizabeth stressed the importance of curiosity in using technology to address local issues.

Ekaterina Smirnova, the Executive Director of the Aurora Tech Award, acknowledged Elizabeth’s achievements as a testament to untapped potential.

According to her, “Elizabeth’s accomplishments showcase what’s possible when we recognize and nurture potential. The Aurora Tech Award not only honors these exceptional founders but also provides tangible support and mentorship resources to help them further their visions.”

This event not only highlighted Elizabeth’s journey but also the increasing number of female leaders in Africa actively addressing pressing issues through innovation and technology.

The collaboration between InDrive and Elizabeth Mwangi underscores the power of technology and innovation in empowering girls. It sets the stage for a future where girls can thrive, lead, and shape the world around them.
