Vanuatu’s Lana Molivurae a certified Smart Sista

Lana Molivurae was recently recruited to join Engineering Business Services’ (EBS) team, who recognised the value of promoting and supporting women in Vanuatu’s IT industry, and now she has achieved her first Information Technology certification. 

Lana is involved in the SMART Sistas program whose mission is to “empower girls to pursue educational opportunities in the ICT field and help Vanuatu reach gender equality in ICT.” 

Earlier this year, Lana was offered the opportunity to work with EBS to learn more about the IT world including training and IT certification. 

SMART Sista ready for Mexico

This is the second time SMART Sista is taking part in a renowned global tech competition.

The event convenes students who have passion in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

SMART Sistas chairman Rodney Philemon says “The girls are working hard and look forward to flying the Vanuatu flag at this International Robotics competition at Mexico City.”

“The girls work hard and are eager to learn, it’s really a joy to work with them,” says Philemon, who is also the young women’s mentor.
