“Eva Balazovicova, Coordinator, EMA:

In EMA, we strongly support investment in digital skills – for young people and for women, especially – because it is proven to bring better perspectives and better quality of life. This project enables us to join forces with partners from private sector, namely company ESET, and our dedicated Moldovan partners, Seed Forum/IHUB and Moldovan Technical University, to deliver that.”


“Irina Grișca, manager of IHUB Chisinau:

Through this initiative, we want girls and women from Chisinau, Comrat, and Balti regions to get more involved in the IT field and achieve the personal, professional and economic development they need. In the coming period, we will offer girls and women the opportunity to attend tech courses, mentoring hours and support in the learning process, and participation in IT programs and events."
