HDIF’s celebrations of the International Day of the Girl

Young women from Thamani ya Binti hosted the show that brought together girls from Camfed, Fundacion Paraguaya, and DOT to share their stories about how HDIF supported innovations have impacted their lives. The event was part of a series of events hosted by SPRING Accelerator and HDIF taking place in London, San Francisco and Dar es Salaam, connected through a livestream on  social media.

Among the highlights of the event was Melody Tirane, age 13, from Ubongo Learning interviewing innovators about how they contribute to building girls’ self-esteem, use of technology, and learning and health outcomes.

During the event, HDIF screened a new film on Inspirational Women in Innovation in Tanzania and also launched its new Gender White Paper, Making Innovation Work for Girls and Women in Tanzania.
