Conclusion

The success and strategy of the project will expand opportunities for women into other communities within the Western Cape. As the month of August highlights the upliftment and importance of women in our society, we need to celebrate this event as a community. Just as women played a pivotal and supportive role within the industrial revolution, insomuch they will greatly contribute towards the digital revolution. Women participation in the economy has always been essential to increase the wealth of societies and improve productivity. To reach the goal of digital inclusion and women empowerment, the I-CAN Center has embarked on a vision to empower women in ICT & entrepreneurship continuously.
