Prof. (Mrs.) Smile Dzisi (the Vice-Chancellor of Koforidua Technical University, who is also the Chairperson of the Conference of Vice-Chancellors/Rectors of Technical Universities and Polytechnics in Ghana) on the Occasion of the visit by Women In Technology Education and Development (WITED) to the Black Queens of Ghana Camp
Women in Technology Education and Development (WITED) mandate is to empower and encourage the interest of the female in pursuing programmes and careers in engineering and technology, that are generally male-dominated. WITED is present in every Technical University/Polytechnic to ensure that the females have role models and professional counseling. We organize programmes and activities to encourage female enrolment in Science, Technology and Engineering and empower the one with special abilities to pursue whatever programme they want to. Our vision is to increase the female students/faculty members in Technical Universities/Polytechnics and ensure that they perform excellently in the male dominated areas.
Our Purpose For Visit
As women in Soccer, you have braved it up to be in a male-dominated profession. We have so much confidence in the Black Queens, and its our prayer that they will Host and Win.
We are here to support and encourage you to perform excellently in the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations in Ghana, which also double up as the FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifications. We are here to let you know that you are in our thoughts and our prayers. We are here to also encourage you that, in addition to soccer, you must develop you other capabilities so that you will be all –rounded sportswomen. You must not let up, give up nor give in. We are solidly behind you.
The Technical Universities and Polytechnics in Ghana have promised full scholarship to any of the Black Queens who wants to further their education in any science and technology based disciplines in the various Technical Universities and Polytechnics in Ghana and also pledge massive attendance at the stadium to watch all their games.
An enabling environment and support should be created for women to achieve their aspirations and careers.
