Telecentre.org Foundation (TCF) is enjoining all its member telecentre networks and partners to organize various activities and events to celebrate the upcoming International Girls in ICT Day.
Girls in ICT Day is an initiative backed by International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Member States in Plenipotentiary Resolution 70 (Guadalajara, 2010) to create a global environment that empowers and encourages girls and young women to consider careers in the growing field of information and communication technologies (ICTs). Girls in ICT Day is held every year on the fourth Thursday of April.
Organizations worldwide are encouraged to host events where girls and young women are invited to ICT companies and government agencies to appreciate the opportunities the ICT sector holds for their future. This year, Girls in ICT Day will be celebrated on April 24.

The portal features an extensive array of useful resources for Girls in ICT Day event organizers including banners, posters, as well as information on previous Girls in ICT Day events.
