Girls doing it themselves in the tech space while empowering others and the future. - Raeketsetsa is a movement that empowers girls and young women in the ICT, giving them the confidence to pursue ICT studies, career and their daily lives. Female Geeks in the South African tech ecosystem have a great role to play towards a more inclusive, conducive and plain-leveled field in building solutions for change. Geekulcha urges South African Female Geeks to take up more spaces and do it themselves as the ICT sector evolves. With the understanding that technology has not become mainsteam for most parts ot marginalised communities in South Africa, an inclusive development process is required to ensure that solutions that accomodate everyone are well met.
