Irene Kiwia founded TWAA – an AI-Driven Knowledge Sharing And Mentorship Platform
One way to tackle the global issue of women empowerment is through mentorship programs which have been known to promote professional networking and open doors to leadership and entrepreneurship.
Recognizing the need for a platform that supports and mentors African women, Irene Kiwia started a corporate social responsibility program to identify and pair young Tanzanian girls with mentors in various industries, and this birthed TWAA. By 2015, with the rise of mobile phone usage, Irene and her team decided to employ technology to reach more young women around the world. Thus, they piloted TWAA.
TWAA is a Swahili word that means Acquire, Take or Learn. It is an AI-driven professional networking platform for women across various sectors and nationalities to access mentors, connect, and share knowledge.
By the end of 2020, TWAA was actively rolling across Africa and other parts of the world. Irene says the platform is currently working to engage associations, networking organizations, and corporate companies looking to mentor or engage with women.
