Former Minister of Education, Dr. Oby hardly make on corporate bodies. If she does, then they must have achieved some feat.

She recently commended Mastercard, a leading technology company in the global payment space, and Youth for Technology Foundation (YTF), an international non-for-profit organisation, on the Nigeria launch of the Girls4Tech initiative.

Girls4Tech is Mastercard’s signature education program designed for young girls around with the goal of inspiring girls to build skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Speaking at the launch held at the RiverBank School, Dr. commended Mastercard and YTF for making the educational investment to encourage more girls to take up interest in STEM subjects.

Addressing the young girls, Dr. admonished them to emulate the likes of Sheryl Sandberg and Elon Musk who are making giant strides in the field of technology. She added: “If Nigeria is going to become a new and different country, it depends on you. You are the human capital that will completely change the basis of Nigeria’s development. Your generation is heralding the 4th industrial revolution.”

During the sessions, the volunteers were able to provide concrete examples of how global science and math standards play out in the real world. This was achieved by providing real life examples through hands-on activities that illustrated each concept, thereby making learning effortless and fun.

The Girls4Tech is a global initiative by Mastercard, launched three years ago to support the global drive to encourage more young girls to undertake the STEM subjects. Through the platform Mastercard has been helped to inspire young girls’ participation in STEM subjects and increase awareness and visibility for STEM.
