Our stories | SITA

 

With projects in Ethiopia, South Africa, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe, we aim to visit the schools and teachers we support on a regular basis to hear their stories and understand how the funding is making a difference. 

Encouraging engineers

In Africa, women represent only seven to twelve percent of engineering students according to UNESCO.

Encouraging women in science

Computers for girls

We worked with our charity partner Computer Aid International to see 100 PCs installed in computer rooms at female student halls of residence at the University of Zimbabwe.

Women at the keyboard

Pen & paper of our time

Students at PEAS schools are always confident, but seeing them present their work on ICT is inspiring.

Technology opening doors

Our Driving force

The Sustainable Development Goals have guided our decisions when choosing  projects with our charity partners.

Achieving the Global Goals

A Skilled GirlForce

We are focused on the UN sustainable goal of gender equality and what actions need to be taken to ensure more women have opportunities  within aviation.

Enabling the next generation of girls

Narrowing the tech gap

We asked the students at secondary schools in Lusaka, Zambia – the change makers of tomorrow – what they would do if they could take over the world.

Education and ICT

Since SITA began the Foundation in 2014, we've positively impacted around 83,000 children across five African countries by bringing ICT and education to young people.

Impacting African education

Girls in science

Encouraging women and girls in science is a topic very close to SITA’s heart and commitment to the Global Goals of Quality Education & Gender Equality.
