The Girls in Gaming seeks to mentor and nurture young girls’ skills in interactive digital media through technical skills as well as awards and incentives given exclusively to the girls to encourage the girls’ engagement. In an age of increased digital and technological innovation, the team hopes to facilitate and pique interest in the minds of young girls to pursue technical education by building a fair, equal and safe environment in the local gaming ecosystem.
Girls in Gaming focuses on the nurturing of young people’s natural curiosity and storytelling capabilities within the gaming and animation sphere. The Eastern Cape has proven to be an emerging media and cultural centre.

The technical skills will provide a holistic knowledge in both hardware and software expertise which will guarantee career opportunities in the ever-present digital age.
