Du nouveau pour les femmes du monde entier: La nouvelle technologie de l'informatique

Désigné par notre association AWA (African Woman in Action) du 15 au 16 novembre 2013, nous avons eu le privilège de participer à une formation organisée par le centre Mama Shujaa qui portait sur l'utilisation de la nouvelle technologie de l'informatique.

Nous avons suivie avec une attention particulière l'exposé de Madame Neema qui nous a expliqué les rôles que doit jouer la femme dans une société. Elle nous a donné les stratégies afin de promouvoir la femme. Elle a insisté sur le fait que la femme elle même peut être à l'origine de sa discrimination, de ses faiblesses, en se croyant incapable alors qu'en réalité elle a de la potentialité qu'elle n'exploite pas malheureusement.

En cette même occasion, nous avons appris comment ouvrir plusieurs comptes sur internet notamment facebook, yahoo, gmail, skype,... Cette opération a été facilité par ce même centre Mama Shujaa qui possède plusieurs machines et une connexion internet de haute qualité. Ceci est à féliciter et revient à l'actif de ce centre.

Tout au long de la formation, elle nous a ainsi suscité à travailler trop dure et à éviter de nous méconduire et d'être légère afin de mériter le respect et l'estime au sein de la société, en milieu du travail,...

A la fin de la formation, nous avons été à mesure d'ouvrir chacun un compte sur wold pulse qui nous permettra d'entrer en contact avec le monde entier, correspondre avec les femmes du monde entier, mener de lobbying pour le financement de nos différent projets,...

Je félicite vivement Madame NEEMA pour la formation de qualité que nous avons reçue de sa part, à toute son équipe pour l'hospitalité, le courage et la bonne collaboration qui a régné entre les participants et les intervenants.
Nous émettons le vœux de voir organiser d'autres ateliers et formations dans ce sens.
Je remercie aussi Madame Justine MAGALA, Conseillère du gouverneur de province du sud-kivu et coordinatrice de l'association AWA pour nous avoir désigner en vue de participer à cette formation d'une importance capitale.

News for Women Around the World: Computer Science, a New Technology

Sent by our association, AWA (African Woman in Action), on November 15-16 2013, we had the privilege of taking part in a training session organized by the Maman Shujaa centre about the use of technology.

We followed Madame Neema’s presentation very closely, where she explained to us the roles that a woman must play in society. She gave us some strategies to empower women. She insisted that a woman can be the cause of her own discrimination, of her weaknesses, by believing herself to be incapable, when, in reality, she has potential that she sadly does not exploit.

On this same day, we learned how to open various accounts on the internet, including Facebook, Yahoo, Gmail, Skype... The Maman Shujaa made this easier through their numerous machines and their high quality internet connection. This connection is excellent and truly an asset to the centre.

Throughout the training, she also urged us to work hard and to avoid misbehaving and being flighty, so as to deserve respect and esteem in our society and our work environment...

At the end of the training, we were each able to open up an account on World Pulse which will allow us to come into contact with the whole world, write to women from all over, lobby for the financing of our various projects...
I heartily congratulate Madame NEEMA for the quality training that she gave us, as well as her whole team for their hospitality and for the great collaboration that they fostered among everyone there.

We would very much like to see more workshops and training sessions of this type. I would also like to thank Madame Justine MAGALA, advisor for the provincial governor of the South Kivu province and coordinator for the AWA association for having asked us to take part in this fundamental training.

Chère Emilie, Merci pour nous

Chère Emilie,
Merci pour nous raconter votre expérience à la formation du Centre Maman Shujaa et aussi pour le questionnaire. Je suis heureuse d’entendre que votre expérience ait été positive. Je suis d’accord avec Mme Neema que parfois, la femme est elle-même sa plus pire ennemie. C’est le cas pour nous toutes. Mais je sais que vous, et toutes les femmes qui sont allées à la formation, vous allez faire une différence dans vos vies.

Bien à vous!
Pilar
