The ICT sector plays a strategic role in the economic development of countries and is at the heart of interactions between industry, services, and local content. The sector has also directly and significantly contributed to the economic growth cycle and job creation in recent years. It is expected that ICTs will produce effects similar to those induced by major technological developments during the industrial revolution which began in the nineteenth century.

It is in this context that a series of activities to build the capacity of girls on the use of mobile applications to fight against poverty in Burkina Faso, was organized during the months of July and August 2016 by UNESCO and the African Youth Network. During the first phase, 104 girls were trained in the use of mobile applications to fight poverty, especially among girls. The next phase focused on initiating 20 young women leaders of associations in the development, design and sharing of mobile applications.

Young girls, all connected thanks to the virtual network, used social networks as support for direct online exchanges.
