IBUKA (Adolescent Girls and Young Women’s Empowerment)

We build the agency and expand opportunities in STEM for adolescent girls and young women with disabilities.

Through the IBUKA Program, The Action Foundation works towards building the agency and expanding opportunities in STEM for adolescent girls and young women with disabilities. Women & girls with disabilities are less likely to access economic resources compared to their peers without disabilities. The situation is dire for women and girls in urban and rural informal settlements and is exacerbated by poverty and inaccessibility of education and training opportunities. 

Participation in the labor force reduces the vulnerability of women and girls with disabilities to exploitation and violence. The IBUKA Program provides adolescent girls and young women with disabilities with Scholarships, Mentorship, Digital Skills Training and STEM Education with the goal of increasing their participation in technology related fields.
