Remodelling still in progress - Uwani Hub - Proudly Powered by How Do You Tech

Our story is quite interesting and full of twists. What started out as an office space turned out to be a hub used to empower young people who are curious about tech.

About Uwani Hub

We are a CSR project of How Do You Tech, working as a non profit with the goals of teaching and inspiring young Africans to be prosumers of technology that will aid in solving our societal problems through the funding of ICT training and programmes.

The Problem

There is a popular adage that says “there is no smoke without fire”. We are here because we want to solve a problem. You may ask, so what exactly is the problem? Click here to read.

Our Mission

In line with one of the targets of SDGs Goal No 5, 8 & 11, our mission is to promote and support the use of information and communication technologies to empower women and teenagers.

Our Vision

Our vision is to promote and facilitate the creation of hubs in different rural townships, hubs set up to explore and equip individuals with digital skills. Our hubs are set up to provide a safe and conducive environment for women and teenagers to do tech. Hubs where they are introduced to technology history, trends, software development, robotics, graphics, and character development.

Uwani Hub Vision 2030

  1. To train 5000 teenagers and females in the use of the WordPress software & digital skills by the year 2030
  2. To build a community of 500 active contributors to the WordPress software particularly among our teenagers within our hub community by year 2030
  3. To train linguists in our community on translating WordPress to our major local language(s), build a community of Polyglots, ready to teach others what they have learnt
