About the program

It is a digital education and inclusion program that originated from a GSMA initiative. Its goal is to empower young and adult women, both professionals and non-professionals, about the benefits of technology and the internet, covering basic, intermediate, and advanced usage, in order to help bridge the gender digital divide. Since its inception, it has been implemented in the 9 countries where Millicom/Tigo operates:


It provides women with tools that enable them to navigate safely while accessing a universe of information and opportunities available on the internet and social networks, helping them enhance their lives as well as those of their families and communities. Furthermore, in April 2022, the digital education platform "Conectadas" was launched, featuring 4 learning modules: Social Networks, Social Networks for My Business, Personal Finances, and Finances for My Business. The educational offerings on this platform are constantly updated and diversified, and we collaborate with our international partners to promote it.
