In my community, we give educative talk on INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY. Our social group is made of girls and women of all scales of society: We teach and encourage members on how to manipulate their mobile telephone We encourage them to manipulate computer; It's why we sent some of them for a computer course From time to time, we give work to members to type for the group. We hope this will help us reach our goals.

Dear Yvega, Thank you for telling a bit about how you are introducing technology and internet into your community. Would love to hear more about this. Would you mind telling us more about your goals and how the internet helps achieving your goals sometime? :)

Again, thank you for speaking out! Your voice is appreciated and much needed!

Peace!

Well done Yvega and you are really doing well. It will help the women a lot to know how to use their mobile phone and computer. Keep up the good work and I wish you all the best

Love Busayo

Dear Yvega,

Thank you for sharing your story. It's wonderful that your goals are to teach others how to use their phones to get to the internet. Have you thought about having a digital literacy class to teach women? What would you call success? What are some of your goals with the program?
