Lighting up a Candle by Web 2.0
" Let France have a good mothers, and they will have a good sons"
I have a wonderful experience with web 2.0 for almost two years. In 2008 we have proposed a project to be funded by Rising Voices http://rising.globalvoicesonline.org/about/
we have gotten the fund, and have started implementing " Empowering Women Activists in Media Techniques ( EWAMT)".
This project aims to obtain Yemeni women activists, the skills of creation blogs as a new media to express their points of view, and how to use the blogs in publicizing the social issues. We have trained 135 ladies so far.
We have a vision to increase the rate of using web 2.0 among Yemeni women. Because of this we are running this project, and we believe that EWAMT is like a candle with other candles, which are lighting up the darkness in Yemen ; we hope that with more blogs and more active conversation the darkness will disappear sonner rather than later.
