According to the World Bank, the female literacy rate is 74.9 percent, compared to the literacy rate of males at 81.1 percent, a stark difference from the literacy rates of the past.

This is set to change as more women are breaking barriers such as motherhood and daytime work to pursue their educational goals. Night classes and distance learning ongoing in local institutions are creating opportunities for such women.

According to a study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. shows that massive open online courses can teach at least as effective as traditional courses set in a classroom. This has primarily been aided by internet evolution in the nation through smart technology.

According to the  Digitalk Report by Consumer Insight, shows that 96 percent of Kenyans with access to connected devices that enable them to engage in internet socializing, shopping, banking, consuming news, gambling, dating, and finding education and career opportunities, among other activities. In addition, the GSMA 2019 mobile gender gap report indicates that 80 percent of women in low and middle-income countries are now mobile and laptop owners.

It is for the same reason that LG unveiled the 2019 LG gram models to deliver convenience with a performance that many women seek when they seek to get a better balance in their lives.

“The LG gram has beautiful displays, compelling design, and enough power for productivity. It has evolved in accordance with what consumers have been asking for – super-light laptops that pair performance with optimum portability,” says LG East Africa Marketing & Corporate Communications Manager Maureen Kemunto.

LG through its lightweight devices such as the LG gram 17 stays true to laptop’s winning formula, balancing smart technology and user demands with a level of portability.

Having been introduced during the CES, this device bridges the gap between portability and performance that any distance learner would appreciate.

The 17-inch LG gram comes with a Wide Quad Extended Graphics Array display that has twice the pixels (2560 x 1600) of a standard Full HD screen, resulting in highly detailed images with incredibly precise color reproduction. Where most 17-inch laptops tip the scale at more than two kilograms, the LG gram 17 weighs in at a mere 1,340 grams to claim the title of the lightest 17-inch laptop on the market.

The lightweight makes it easy for users to enjoy a large-screen experience wherever they go.

Contrary to what its size might suggest, the 17-inch LG gram is a powerhouse portable workstation. With the newest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor and up to 16GB of DDR4 memory, the laptop works efficiently and smoothly, even when running the most resource-thirsty files and apps. The laptop comes with a 256GB solid-state drive (SSD) and has an extra slot for an additional SSD, allowing double the onboard storage.
