Afghan government ministries are teed up to receive $1 billion in direct aid as U.S. and NATO troops leave the country -- but that loosely supervised flow of money will create a massive opportunity for waste and corruption, a new inspector general report has found.

Bomin Keum's curator insight, March 9, 2014 11:45 AM

This article is about women in Africa being involved in the African "tech boom". This article includes people discussing about how women should be in part of technology development, and know about the systems and knowledge of it. They talk about how there are programs encouraging girls to gain interests toward technology and that “There is no difference between women and men, what’s important is their skills,” .

This helped me learn more about Africa of how Africa are making attempts to improve and make African women be in part of technology in Africa. This also made me understand of how Africans KNOW of how African girls are not being in part of technology, and that they should change this situation and make it fair for women too.

I was surprised of how Africa is actually trying to improve their country and how they actually realized how unfair the women were treated. This made me think of Africa again, for how they are trying to improve, not just doing nothing for their countries.
