Abs Development Organization (ADO) work on digital literacy since 2004 in Hajjah-Yemen, where women are grossly deprived of their right and participation in the socioeconomic and political floors. Moreover, where most of the women have no voice against the violation of their human rights. Therefore, ADO opened the first Training Centre of digital literacy for women at Hajjah level. In 2004 implemented 4 campaigns on The importance of using the Internet for women, and then started the training on computer skills for 20 women during that period I faced a lot of challenges from local administration as well as from the Govt.But as innovator for idea continued & insisted to completed the training for these women. In 2005 training another groups (20) women, Now our center have more than Five thousand women that graduated and have all types skills of digital such as word, excel, use internet, use Email, Facebook and how search in the web. Today Abs women proudly claim that they have an idea about different cultures. When they need any information just open the web. Today these women knew the benefits of digital technologies, such as share advocacy messages and create platforms for communities to lobby for policy change, make markets and businesses more efficient, increase government transparency and accountability and give us new ways to assemble and make our voices heard. In addition, put these women in touch with ideas, knowledge, friends and loved ones.
