Sophia Bekele’s message on International Women’s Month of March.
March 8, 2021
DotConnectAfrica (DCA) Group joins the rest of the world in celebrating women of all races, cultures, religion and statuses during March 2021.
This year, the United Nation’s theme for International Women’s Day of March 8th is “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world.”
Here at DCA, we are excited to celebrate the tremendous efforts by women and girls around the world in shaping an equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as highlighting the gaps that remain by a campaign #shetechscharge for the month of March.
In commemoration of this year’s International women’s day, listen to the insightful message from our Founder Ms. Sophia Bekele, who has pioneered the women-in-tech space in Africa over a decade ago by launching the Miss.Africa Digital program. Currently, we relaunched this program last year as FemPower, dedicated to empowering the women-led Small & Growing Business (SBGs) sector.
To honor this global day, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) will host the United Nations Observance of International Women’s Day on March 8, 2021, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EST. This virtual celebration will bring together high-level dignitaries and other gender equality advocates as they amplify the voices of women and girls all over the world as well as share thoughts on how to keep placing them at the forefront.

We urge you to be on the lookout as we will soon open our online portal again for the 6th Round.
- Be achievement oriented every day. Success is relative,
don’t focus on the destination, make the journey worthwhile.
- Speak up when challenged – I have unlearned that silence will not protect you.
- Follow your dream and venture outside of your comfort zone. Be open to anything.
- Don’t be afraid to fail. Failure is inevitable.
- When you build a business or organization, I strongly recommend that it be a PURPOSEFUL, i.e., one that will uniquely serve society.
- Have Strength, Purpose, and Resolve in what you do. Most of all, be grateful every day for what you already have!
