GamChix, an all-woman group was formed after a week-long training in Unix Systems in 2017 and will this year join the Girls in ICT to commemorate and celebrate the event through its training program. The group is made up of dynamic Women in Technology from different areas of expertise in the field of ICT in The Gambia.

We are a registered non-profit network of women Engineers in ICT in The Gambia with almost 50 members.

From the begin, our mission has been to empower, connect, mentor and support the next generation of women leaders in STEM by providing them access and opportunity to advance their careers, pursue their dreams, and become role models for women and girls in their communities. Today, it remains the same, supporting the education of women and girls in the ICT sector.
