WCE now has 10 Field Associates representing us in Haiti and 9 African countries. Each Field Associate has prior experience with WCE, has a facility, and tech staff. Our Field Associates represent WCE in their respective countries in meetings with government and donors and seek opportunities to recruit new WCE Partner organizations and provide them with more refurbished computers, educational content, capacity building and programs in Youth Tech Leadership and Inspire Girls. They are exploring ways to establish WCE refurbishing and training Chapters in their countries.
They help us recruit teachers in their countries to work with teachers in the USA to co-develop tools for teachers working to inspire girls to pursue careers in technology. Five of our Field Associates are working with local teachers and students to co-develop and field test our 5 resources for African teachers interested in inspiring girls to pursue careers in technology.
