Local library for Women with Internet in Milange/ Livraria local com acesso a internet para Mulher e menina em Milange-Mozambiqu

a place 400 kilometers away from Milange only to access the Internet

.
O acesso a internete e uma biblioteca digital em Milange eres fundamental para o desenvolvimento do Paiz com participacao da mulher e melhoramento da economia e das condicoes de Vida no Paiz.

Eu e outras mulheres de Mozambique residentes na Zambezia distrito de Milange inclusive turistas e NGos em Viagem pela Africa fora, Via Milange - zona fronteirissa mais conhecida por Muloza - "Border of Malawi", enfrentamos muitos obstaculos para acedermos a rede da internet. Um dos problemes principais eres a falta de um sitio, um lugar, um edificio ou um estabelecimento dedicado a Internete Educacao desenvolvimento social e cultural e informatico para a Mulher e menina de Mozambique.

Muita mulher, acima de 80 procentos da Mulher Mozambicana vive em zonas rurais ou zonas Urbanas mais pobres do Paiz. Acima de 40 procentos nao conecem o Alfabeto. As poucas que o alfabeto conhecem nao o dominam mesmo ocupando a funcao de Professoras de Escolass Primarias.

E porque muitissima mulher Rural vive em palhotas e trabalha no campo nuitas vezes com o seu marido a Mozambicana torna-se uma mulher cem procentos dependente do seu marido. E porque a maior parte das palhotas ficam situadas em zonas onde nao existe a canalizacao de agua electrificacao e absolutamente nenhuma forma de iluminacao para alem dos seus propios olhos uma vela ou um candeiro a pertolio, O nivel de informacao comnnicacao entre as mulheres e a sociedade em geral eres muito limitado

Para alem dos problemas acima indicados tambem temos o problema de falta de transporte. Falta de conhecimentos basicos de higiene como por exemplo manter as maos limpas, o banho diario a ma Nurition e o problema de com quem deixar as criancas e os velhos em casa para ir bliblioteca .

Energia Electrica e Preco da Internet.

A Corrente electrica eres fundamental para aceder-se a Internete. Em Milange temos o problema da falta de Energia. A corrente electrica, para alem de ser muito cara, falta porque existem cortes de avarias quase diariamente. Todas as Segundas ou uma vez por semana, devido a servicos de manutencao, Distribuition e Transmissao de corrente Electrica fornecida pelo o Paiz Visinho, Malawi. O problema de electrificacao das casas da maior parte da Populacao de Mozambicanos nao se justifica visto que Mozambique em a Hidrioletrica de Cahora Bassa - fornecedora de Corrente Electrica a Maior parte dos Paizes mais desenvolvidos do Sul da Africa.

De facto O Governo, muitas vezes tambem tem sido o criador de obstaculos propositadamente para deprivar o acesso a Internete a Mulher e outos cidadaos. O Governo usando assim a corrente Elecrica como o o metodo mais indicado para iliminar acesso a Internet, liberdade politica, concurrencia e mudancas na sociedade e melhoramento da econmia do Paiz. Contudo, nao existe no distrito de Milange o estabelecimento communicacao digital para a mulher.

Muitas meninas em Milange, e outras Zonas rurais do Pais passam para mulheres e adultas enquanto muito novas via casamentos prematuros efectuados por falta de condicoes minimas e basicas de vida, meninas sentem-se obrigadas a casar-se ou amegar-se, mesmo sabendo que ainda sao criancas e passaram dependeram de um homen que muitas vezes nao tem condicoes financias para sustentar uma famila. Elas dizem: "Pelo nao se esta no sol tenho sabao para tomar banho". Dado que por varias razoes mais de 80 procentos da mulher Mozambicana vive do Salario do homen com quem vive ou e do dinheiro que ganham na venda de productos agricolas e outros produtos alimenticios produzidos em casa com pao, doces e bolinhos vendidos nos mercados municipais ou na frente das suas casas,
a mulher e menina torna-se dependentes do marido e familia mesmo sendo ela empresaria ou finaciamente independente do seu marido pois eres do Mariodo que nasceu o dinheiro para comecar negocios.

A mulher e a Internete em Milange

Em Milnage - Mozambique fala-se Portugues mas 99 procentos da da populacao Mozambicana do Norte au Sul,conhece, entende, compreende, e fala varias palavra do Vocabulario Ingles que i varias vezes durante um dia. Sao palavras e gestos como " ok", Yes, Mam, food ofte pronounces as "foodi" pover Rich Daddy, Go, Phone, Conversation, Information Communication No, Stop, motor, Jeep etc etc phone, mobile e muita outras fruit, beer.

Presentemente em naquele distrito, nao existe um sitio nem lugar onde nem a mulher nem a alunos do ensino primario e medio pode aceder a Internete e participar em cursos e outros programas de educacao nem desportos e saude. Internete naquele distrito so existe para quem tem possiblidades de compar um computador, empresarios reconhecidos pelo Governo e funcionarios da Radio Local. A falta de Educacao e Communicacao e contacto nao se limita ao acesso a Internete mas tamben ao acesso a Servicos de Emergencia e Saude Ambulancia mesmo quando se trata assistencia mulheres gravidas am altura de partos. Hoje, quando se necessita de uma ambulancia nas zonas rurais, os familiares ou amigos do doente dirigem/se a rua ou estrada onde esperm por qualquer meio de trasporte terrestre que por acaso passar venha a passar - o que resulta a percas de vidas e incomodos desnecessarias proprietarios de automoveis privados tanto como a tutistas.

Seguranca fisica dos lugares e da mulheres

A falta de seguranca seguranca fisica e humana e um problema que necessita de muita atencao. Estabelecimentos nao estatais em Mozambique-Milange sao victimas de assaltos e roubos organizados por Lideres Governamentais e atoridades comunitarias e muitas vezes ate Gerals da forca armada da FRELIMO em nome do Presidente da Nacao. Existem casos comprovados em Mozambique onde o Governo manda atacar, distruir, roubar,queimar e nacionalizar propriedades privadas especialmente quando se trata de projectos relacionados ao acesso a Internet para Mulheres e meninas e jovens.

Da mesma forma Uma mulher que infelizamente ja perdeu a vida de AIDS, confessou que frequentava a Internete para acompanhar o desenvolvimento do mundo, melhor as suas possiblidades de encontrar um bom emprego " nao quero ficar para traz ". Disse ela. Falou-me tambem que muitas vezes os filhos ou o marido eram obrigados a esperar por ela a porta da escola para evitar que certos homens a obrigam-se entregar o se corpo. Pois alguns dos senhores lhe ameacavam dizendo que ja estavam fartos de esperar que ela comprova-se porque ia ao centro Internete, pois a presenca dela no cento da Radio Internete ja significava que ela era uma mulher de todos.

How can my local lybrary make it easier for women to use the internet. What solutions are you creating to make Internet more accessible to women in your commynity?

A livraria digital com acesso a intertet para Mulheres de Milange na Zambezia eres uma promocao de igualdade e direictos entre Mulheres, homen, meninas e Rapazes e melhoramento da position da mulher no ramo administration economica technologica e saude.

A Livraria Digital de Milange com acesso a internete para Mulheres formado de programas de educacao e ensino para mulheres com aulas, palestra, cursos, seminarios e um programa international " study abroad" tanto como uma estacao de uma pequena televisao rural - eres fundamental para o melhoramento da economia de Mozambique e de toda a Africa.

Em Milange nao ha um sitio dedicado a Internet e communicacao para a Mulhere e menina. A meio da serra existe um sitio de Acesso para pessoas credenciadas pela Governo, que tambem eres um sitio mais usado por homes e senhores na sociedade Mozambicana.

O Governo de Mozambique do norte ao sul em relation a Internete e Communication Internatiuonal basea-se na violencia credenciada a Autoridades Comunitarias composta por secretarios Comandantes da policia e outas pessoas iliteradas como, Chefes de Qurteiroes, Chefes de Casas" Funcionarios da Assembleia que que confessam estar fazendo o que nao querem nem sequer teem a vontade de o fazer porque sao ordens do Governo. Muitas vezes Organizadas criancas e outros mais fracos na sociedade em troca de uma refeicao a destruir desfazer e roubar tudo quando for possivel em sitios administrados por mulheres dedicando-se a Internete para a mulher nas zonas rurais.

A Mulher em Mozambique em geral sofre desamparo da familia porque os familiares normalmente ou sao ameacados a morte e a muito mais, muito escolhem encostar-se as actividades criminais do Governo para safar a sua pele.

A Livraria digital com acesso a Internet para mulheres dedica-se a novos programas de education para gente nas zonas rurais com o fim de contribuir para o melhoramento das qualificacoes literaria da mulher nas zonas rurais e fronteirissas o que contribuira para A modernizao do impacto da tradicao normas religiao e habitos, tanto como tambem contribuira para o desenvolvimento positivo de economia e politica estavel e transparent no Pais.

O Geverno e Familia ea Mulher e internete todos os dias

"Sao casos de casamentos prematuros ou por force massure que muitas vezes leva a menina e mulher a uma vida de eterna probreza". Na Internete a mulher descobre o mundo moderno, novos modos de vida que nao necessariamente enclui um casamento por questoes de sobrevivencia.

Fornecendo programas de informaction e cursos de em areas de higyiene, saude, nuticao alimentatation culinaria e gastronomia, musica danca, idioma e linguas cultura, structure, econoomia, melhorar-se-ha ma numero de empregos Independencia da mulher na sociedade Mozambicana.

Na livraria ou biblioteca para mulheres em Milange cursos referentes a Conhecimentos de saude tanto Basica como avancada todos os ramos da vida social e profissional contribuiram pra Melhorar a saude maternal e de bebes recem nascidos. O desenvolvimento de novas formas de nutricao no Paiz e eliminar a fome.

Actualmente dizem qre eres al meio da Serra Tumbine a esquerda de quem vai a Adminiatracao Distrital, nos antigos edificios ou Casernas da GNR no Governo Colonial onde marchava a Milicia da Ordem Distrital. Hoje sendo o sitio uma escola Secundaria uniformizada, onde tem havido Muitos casos de pessoas sendo mordidas por cobras venenoza. Cobras que muitas vezes mordem a mulher e menina quando vai ao rio buscar agua ou lavar a roupa.

Eu e para contribuir para que haja internete para todos e especialmente para mulheres comprei uma pequena Industria no ditrito composta de 3 Edificios mais 2 hectares de terreno. A medida em que fui pensando numa forma para ajudar a minha communidade tranferi todos os meus bem pessoas para o Didtrito e comprei 7 Computadores, 13 telemoveis, mobilario de escritoirio, 2 camaras TV JVCGHM100 Concorde e uma fazenda com 4.339, hectares no centrio do Distrito de Milange. Dado que se tratava de um projecto implementado por uma Mulher nao casada O Governo primeiro mandou membros da FRELIMO exigirem um casamento por questoes de Protecao.

Para alem de mais A mulher e Milange muitas vezes a mulher e menina de Milange se dirige confessou que eres necessario um sitio com inyternete onde possam se sentir mais e melhor informadas sobre muita coisa que se passa no mundo. Agumas vinham porque necessitam de um dicionario pois querem aprender Fngles e Frances, etc., etc., Ha necessidades de cursos sobre a Higiene a nutricao e saude. Sao coisas basicas do dia a dia como como lavar, lavar bem os alimentos, a culinaria e Gastronomia Africana.

A Internete para mulheres e meninas nas zonas rurais tambem contribura para a modernizacao da civilizacao Africana e mudanca de mentalidade, liberdade de expressao, seguranca, Paz, sossego e emprego melhor communicao e contacto entre a sociedade Mozambicana em Mozambique e no estrangeiro.

Qe soluciones estas creando para que a Internete seja mais accessivel as Mulheres na Minha commnudade.

Para que a Internete seja mais accessivel paraas mulheres npo meu Dostrito eu comecei por comprar uma propriedade com espaco suficientye para montar uma Biblioteca ot internete Cafe e Restaurante. Minha propioedade eres una pequena Industris composta de trez edificios colinais com creca de 600 metros quadrados divididos em en edificios dento de um espaco de terreno de 1 hectar 2 meio de Jardin no centro do Distrito de Milange com duas viatura de tracao as quato rodas para facilitar o meio de transporte.

Dado que a maior das mulhers meninas e jovens vivem fora das zonas urbanas do distrito tambem comprei 250 hectare correpondentes a 4343 hectares de terreno antiga Zona de agricultura e pecuaria cerca de 5 kilometros do centro do distrito. ver mapa. Um gerador para o fornecimento de Energia Electrica "Iveco de 60Kvt"

Por motivo de falta de seguranca fisica do estabelevimentoe da clientela o meu projecto ainda esta numa fase inincial nao avancada.

Duas Camaras de TV JVC Pro GYM 100, microphones profissionas mesas de escritorio e outros Inventario de escritorio com lugares de trabalho de para 7 pessoas no sector administrativo.

Tambem adqueri equipamentos de seguranca como Telefones para communicao interna, material e maquinas de escritorio e construcao para recontrucao do estabelecimento, que erres uma pequena farma construida em Ruinas no centro do Distrito de Milange.

Somente nos faltava a corrente electrica o acesso a Internete a seguranca, o apoio aceitacao e colaboracao do Governo. Mas por sermos mulheres solteiras com paixao na politica amor a Patria, e ao povovo Mocambicano com vontade de servir ao Povo fazendo mudancas e tudo aquilo de bom para o povo e paiz "que ainda nao foi feito" Plano de acesso a Internete para mulheres meninas joven e pessoas em na em Milange ainda esta numa faze inicial.

Library with Access to Internet for Women and Girls in Milange, Mozambique

Access to the Internet and a digital library in Milange is necessary for the country’s development and for greater participation and economic improvement for the lives of women in the country.

Other women and I, including tourists and NGOs, living in the Milange district of Zambezia Province, Mozambique—face a lot difficult in accessing the Internet. One of the main problems was that there was nowhere dedicated to Internet education and computer science for women and girls.

Many women, more than 80% of Mozambicans, live in rural or urban areas that are very poor. More than 40% cannot read or write. The few that do hardly master it, even those who are teachers in primary schools.

That is why so many rural women live in huts and work in the fields alongside their husbands. Mozambican women have become so reliant on their husbands. Most huts do not have running water, electricity or any form of lighting apart from candles or gas lamps. The level of information exchange and communication between many women and the rest of society is very limited.

Apart from the problems described above, most also lack access to transportation. The lack of basic information about hygiene—such how to keep your hands clean, regular bathing, and nutrition—is one problem that prevents children and older people at home instead of going to the library.

Electricity is essential for using the Internet. We don’t have regular electricity in Milange. Apart from being expensive, there are cuts to electricity almost everyday. We shouldn’t have such problems with electricity because Malawi is a huge hydroelectric producer, providing energy to most of the more developed countries in southern Africa.

In fact the government has often created obstacles to prevent its citizens from using the Internet. The government has used electrical power to limit Internet access, political freedom, changes in society, and economic improvement. As a result, there isn’t anywhere with Internet access for women in Milange.

Many girls in Milange and in other rural regions in the country become adults and many child marriages occur because of low quality of life. Many girls feel obligated to get married, even though they are still children and their new husbands won’t be able to support them. For many reasons, more than 80% of Mozambican women live off of the salaries of their husbands and from the money they make selling agricultural products and other food products they make at home. Women and girls become dependent on men, even though they might be operating their own businesses, because the money for these businesses come from their husbands.

Right now in Milange, there isn’t a place where women and students can access the Internet. Internet access is only available to those who are able to buy a computer—businessmen recognized by the government and employees of the radio station. Lack of education and communication isn’t only limited to Internet access, but also to a lack of emergency services. Today when an ambulance is needed in rural areas, family members or friends must take the victim to a highway and wait for some mode of transport to come along. What happens is that people end up losing their lives, and automobile owners and tourists become inconvenienced.

Lack of safety is a problem that requires a lot of attention. Non-governmental institutions in Milange are often victim to robberies and threats from the government or community authorities, and sometimes even officials from FRELIMO, the military. There have been cases where the government has attacked, robbed, burned, and nationalized private establishments—many of these targeted establishments include those that would offer Internet access to women and young people.

The establishment of a digital library with access to the Internet, would promote equality and basic human rights for women and young people. Such an establishment that could also offer education programs and a local television station could do so much for improving the quality of lives of women in Mozambique and in all of Africa. On the Internet, a women can discover the world.

Families in Mozambique are threatened by death or illness, and many become involved in illegal activity to support themselves.

A library in Milange could offer course on basic health, as well as courses on professional development and maternal health. This could lead to greater development and progress.

So that the Internet can be more accessible to women in my district, I have bought some space to build a library or Internet café and restaurant. For a variety of factors, this project is still in an initial phase. I was able to acquire equipment (telephones, and writing materials).

We still lack electricity, as well as support and acceptance from the government. We love our country, and the Mozambican people want to make changes and progress.

Steps Toward Access

Thank you for sharing the challenges of rural women and the dire consequences a lack of connection and protection can have on multiple generations of families. I am very encouraged to read that you are working toward a solution, even if it is in the early stages and does not have government support. I hope that telling your story in this forum will help you find the support you need to advance your internet access space and open up a world of possibilitites to women in your area. I wish you luck and hope to hear more over time.

I am sorry to see that women

I am sorry to see that women in your country face so many challenges. It is great that you are starting a library so some of them can get access to the internet and other information. It will take time, but I hope that will help to change attitudes and bring more opportunities.

Have you read about the Mama Shujaa centre in Congo? They are also in a place where life for women can be incredibly hard, but have had a lot of success in teaching women how to use the internet and communicate with the rest of the world. And there are many other people on World Pulse doing similar things to you too.

Good luck!

Mary

I saw in another post that

I saw in another post that you don't have any anti-virus software at the moment. You need to get hold of some and scan your machine as a virus or other malicious software may be the cause of your problem. If you go to a local internet café or computer centre they may be able to help you fix it.

Mary

The security and realities of women and girls in Mozambique are significant difficulties, but you are doing great work in defining your challenges and working towards the goal of connecting women and girls to the internet and information about the world. I also encourage to look at the solutions found by other women and shared here on World Pulse, including the energy and hopefulness of Neema Namadamu in Congo.

There is information, help and encouragement from others who have walked down the path you are intending to travel. We are glad you are here.

In hope and Peace,
Ann Fishburn

Vivid cultural discussion

I learned so much from your writing about the cultural life and expectations of women in Mozambique. It sounds like there are many challenges that women face there. Bringing those challenges out in the open is the first step to figuring out how to address them. You have so many great ideas to implement to help improve women's access to the information and connections the internet provides. I also encourage you to connect with other women here at World Pulse who have undertaken similar projects in their communities, as they can support you along the way and hopefully answer questions that may arise for you. Best of luck with your very important project!

Translation

The translation is beautiful. But you must remember that one of the keys to professional translation is not to change very much the sentences. There was a mistake related to Electricity. Plase note that not Malawi but Mozambique is the producer of electricity out of the 4th World biggest Hydrioletric in in Tete. The Hydriolectic of Cahora Bassa.
