Welcome to Blue Sands Academy

We invest in women and girls so that they can have the technological skills to turn their lives and communities around. The participation of women in the Nigerian tech sector is low. In a survey of 93 technology firms by ONE Campaign and the Center for Global Development, only about 30% of businesses were owned by women, mostly concentrated in e-commerce and enterprise solutions.
