Regina Agyare is a software developer with eight years’ work experience and a social entrepreneur with a passion for using technology to drive social change. She started a social enterprise called Soronko Solutions that uses basic mass technology to drive human potential and solve social problems.

Regina is currently helping small- and medium-scale enterprises in Ghana create visibility and grow their business with technology. She is also working on a program that will develop the next generation of innovators and problem solvers from the rural communities in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in Ghana and across sub-Saharan Africa.

Regina is also working on how the disabled in Ghana can use technology to integrate better into their communities. Her story was featured in Lean In for Graduates by Sheryl Sandberg and Impatient Optimist by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. CNN featured her Tech Needs Girls Ghana project, which helps girls to code and create technology. Regina graduated from Ashesi University with a Bachelor of Science in computer science.

Upon completion of the Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, she intends to use the education, experience and network to continue with her work of using technology to drive social change and scale her social enterprise.
