TEKEDU was founded in 2013 to promote the inclusion of women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and enhancing ICT skills among young people. Based in the Moldovan capital, Chișinău, TEKEDU works mainly with girls aged 16-20 around the country to equip them with the technological skills and tools to work in STEM. This is done through workshops and advocacy. The organisation runs camps that teach girls new technologies such as 3D printing and robotics and aims to raise girls’ interest in technology. At the end of the summer camp, participants become ambassadors of the programme and organise activities in their regions. An annual forum is organised every year, which brings together all those who participated in TEKEDU events throughout the year; parents, partners of the programme, school administrators and supporters of the programme. The forum is an opportunity to showcase the organisation’s achievements for the year and participants get to share their stories and discuss future plans. TEKEDU uses an innovative approach to promoting women and girls in STEM with a strong girl-centred set of programmes. 100 per cent of direct beneficiaries are girls.
