New technology has been really useful to the women and girls of our generation here in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, particularly in Bukavu, at the heart of the Mama Shujaa organization. We have had the opportunity to exchange ideas with women around the world. The exchange of ideas is very important and beneficial in our societies. Thus, Mama Shujaa has been very helpful to us. Through the exchange of information, we can come together, and for a moment each of us can defend their rights as individuals. It is all thanks to the new technology that all the women and girls can participate in this exchange. I consider this new technology as a key tool to a new direction in my life, the path to the best life. This is not just for myself, but for all the women who give value to this new technology. We thank Mama Shujaa for its grand effort in providing women with access to technology and the internet.

Hi Masoka I enjoyed reading

Hi Masoka

I enjoyed reading your story.

I have read about the Mama Shujaa centre and the important work it is doing to teach women how to use the internet to tell their stories to the rest of the world, and to get new knowledge and ideas. I hope that other groups will be able to learn from what you are doing.

I know that Congo can be a difficult place for women, and it is great that you now have more opportunities to speak for yourselves and join the campaign for peace and human rights in your country.

Best wishes

Mary

Using the Internet

Dear Masoka,

Thanks for sharing your experience with the Mama Shujaa Center. it seems like that will become a wonderful meeting place for you and many of your neighbors. Learning how to use the computer and the Internet will take a little time to learn but you can do it--you are a woman and can do ANYTHING, right? Keep us informed and please know that you are not alone. I'm praying for all ladies in the DRC every morning
