ICT-Go-Girls is an European project, co-financed by the European Commission, under Comenius LLP program. Its main goal is to empower secondary school girls with the knowledge, skills and values to help them be able to create future opportunities for innovation and quality ICT related employment. We believe that ICT can provide a flexible and potential motivational environment for empowering these young women in their future choices, their studies and jobs.
