Women and girls have a crucial role in defining and building a digital / tech narrative that will take Africa to higher frontiers. We all have a role to play in eradicating gender imbalances in the tech space and Raeketsetsa seeks to ensure that sisters are not left behind.

Furthermore, Raeketsetsa will champion and support projects that seek to uplift, protect and elevate women/girls through digital or technological tools.
