Empowering Girls Through Education

The 'Empowering Girls Through Education' solidarity project underscores imec's commitment to corporate solidarity. Through this initiative, we empower Kenyan girls, providing them with the opportunity to study, break the cycle of female genital mutilation (FGM), and ultimately become role models for their communities.

Empowering Kenyan girls to pursue their dreams

Situated in the heart of Kuria in western Kenya, the Visa Academy acts as a refuge for girls escaping the threat of FGM, providing educational opportunities until the age of 14.

Through collaboration with the Hope for Girls foundation, imec employees enable continuous education for 35 girls, encouraging their academic persistence and empowering them to pursue their dreams.

As a contribution to the Close the Gap project, imec implemented the first computer class in Kuria -an area equivalent in size to Flanders- highlighting our dedication to technological empowerment.
