The STEM Belle is a non-profit, which is focused on recalibrating the female representation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Our impact model is to attract girls to STEM subjects, retain them in Science classes and then advance them through, to STEM careers. We are headquartered in Nigeria but have had our foot prints in Ghana and Pakistan.

Impact so far
15 KITS RECIPIENTS NOW IN STEM IN SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL
Doreen’s work to empower and inspire girls to follow careers in STEM is the most exciting piece of outreach work that I have encountered. We are incredibly proud of her extraordinary achievement.”
Being the first experience, it is worthwhile to commend The STEM Belle for putting up a successful boot camp. The sessions with/for the teachers were wonderful, mind reorienting and challenging. I just want to encourage you not to relent as lives are being motivated as you and your teams now have mentees to nurture and look up to you.
The 2019 boot camp has been a point of reference for the students. It has changed their orientation about life, the exposure created in them and aspiration for greater heights. However, the education of most of them is not yet sound, hence, they should be encouraged, monitored to study and read very well.
On my part as a STEM Belle teacher, I cannot forget the training, it has inspired me and spurred me into action as an effective teacher. Thank you so much for the opportunity to be part of your dream to encourage girls into STEM careers.
The operation of The STEM Belle finally gave my students the opportunity to shine, as it was the first time only girls were recognized in an award ceremony and an eye opener for those who did not win.
The boot camp experience exposed them to new experience, leaving home for the first time to be camped with other girls. The skills and knowledge they gained cannot be quantified, they went back home dignified, determined and bent on reaching their greatest potentials.
The STEM Belle has done great things in the lives of girls especially in the local area, they orientated them to think/ project positively what their future would look like in STEM and not end up with unwanted pregnancy.
They put students on their toes by giving the girls gifts for academic excellence also, they provide tuition waiver and educational materials for these girls which has helped reduce financial burden on the parents.
Being part of The STEM Belle has made me become studious and determined never to give up on my dream. As an ambassador, the STEM Belle gave me a role, to serve as a model to other girls. I love being the ambassador because it will always keep me in check and not relax in my academics, knowing that people are looking up to me.
The STEM Belle is an organization that helps students become inventors and problem solvers. Paying fees in school has been hard before now but through the tuition waivers and books that I got from The STEM Belle for academic awards has made it easy.
Through The STEM Belle, I have found my voice and confidence in class. I usually don’t believe in myself or what I can become, The STEM Belle helped me create my 10 years career plan during the last bootcamp which has kept me going and I believe that I can make it.
I joined The STEM Belle early this year and it has been an incredible experience. Most of these girls are now very familiar with basic concepts in STEM and are exposed to opportunities in STEM an opportunity I never had in secondary. These girls are more encouraged to pursue their career in STEM as academic excellence in STEM subjects are also rewarded.
I call STEM Belle my family and I have had a lot of experience helping to nurture these girls. I believe that what most of these girls need is the right exposure, encouragement and opportunities and this is one great impact of STEM Belle on this girls.
My daughter has acquired a lot of experiences, knowledge, exposure, boldness and awards through STEM Belle educative and innovative programs such as Boot camp, games, best student awards, COVID – 19 palliative etc. This NGO is a real unique and standard setter in the educational sector in the South-West. Your facilitators are well grounded and our children will never forget The STEM Belle.
Thanks to The STEM Belle for reaching out to a community like ours, teaching our girls to aim for higher education in STEM.
My Daughter has really changed, she now communicates in English and very determined to study beyond Secondary level, all thanks to The STEM Belle.
My experience at the boot camp was great. I can now stand bold and say that there is nothing a man can do that a woman cannot do. I can now make effective decisions, make and code a robot, define my career, understand my surroundings and take effective steps that my younger ones will benefit from.
I really enjoyed and gained a lot during my time in boot camp. I learnt how to create a robot, how to create a website and how to connect and network with friends. I also learnt how to participate effectively in a team and be a great team player. I also learnt how to communicate with people in a calm way.
Today is a very great day because we built a robot and learnt how to design in canva. We also learnt career opportunities in STEM and one health approach. We talked about climate change etc. I am very happy.
