Chicas en Tecnología is an NGO that aims at closing the gender gap in technology by promoting, motivating, and training the new generation of innovator girls in technology and entrepreneurship.

Our goal is that teenage girls consider technology as an ally to fulfill various purposes, from thinking about technology as a means of expression to considering it a possible solution to an array of issues across their communities.

How do we do it?

Through different programs and initiatives
