Context/Overview

In Senegal, despite their important presence in the music industry, women often lack education and information. DigitELLES is a digital training programme, developed by Africulturban, for young female musicians.  Africulturban will launch an awareness raising campaign to combat stereotypes and empower women to fight against discrimination in the sector.

Results

The project will increase professional opportunities for 20 young women working in the music industry by strengthening their technical skills, and will provide opportunities for them to establish micro-enterprises to contribute to their financial independence.
