My Proposal; DMF Digital Empowerment Training

Emily Miki
Posted April 19, 2016 from Cameroon

Goal: To ignite a desire for community members to become digitally empowered since 1 in 30 have digitally empowered members. Our culture has not adopted the concept of being digitally empowered for the success of the different careers the people are involved in. Thus it is important to point out this factor and teach them how to gain access to the available communities where they can enhance their skills and open up their world given the many opportunities available in the internet. To empower women as we desire we also need to empower their immediate community members (their families, children, leaders, mentors and friends)

Audience: Primary Target Audience: Women: an empowered woman is an empowered family, community and country.

Secondary Target Audience: Youths: be empowered for an empowered future given they are the future of tomorrow

Men (husbands, brothers, and fathers): be the models to support women empowerment after becoming aware of the importance of a woman’s empowerment to the home and the community.

Media: increase the communication of the project through their tv channels, radio, newspapers and blogs.

Community leaders (chiefs, quarter heads, meeting leaders): raise the debate within the community and create community advisory board to follow-up methods to facilitate community member’s digital empowerment.

Opinion leaders: as people whom are heard from will spread the message of the importance of a digitally empowered woman.

Expected Audience Actions - Workshops/Trainings - Pass-It-On Activities - Crowdfunding/Peer-to-Peer --- Fundraising Registration into online communities like World Pulse

Hi Emily,

I like to see that you are taking on digital empowerment as your topic, and hope that your participation in Intro to Digital Empowerment, VOF, and access to the Digital Empowerment Trainer's Toolkit has given you some ideas about how to train on digital empowerment. 

Your post recognizes the importance of engaging different stakeholders/audiences, and I am interested to learn more about the actions you would like each to take. You have a great overall goal, have you thought of any other outcomes you might like to see from this campaign as well (smaller goals or milestones that will help you achieve your campaign goal)? I'm also interested to learn more about how you will use World Pulse in your campaign, beyond fundraising. 

Looking forward to learning more about the campaign you are planning!

Best,

Stephanie

Dear Emily,

It's evident how much thought you have put into your goals and your audiences. Empowering people to use the digital tools at their disposal will help them in all aspects of their lives. Thank you for being an advocate of World Pulse, and for taking what you've learned and spreading it into your community. You are the first step in realizing your Expected Audience Actions. 

I'm wondering what it is in the culture that you think holds people back from using these tools. How will your training sessions help solve those problems? I know you've given each step of this exercise great thought. I am excited to see the outcomes!

Sincerely,

Tamara
