Promoting ICT for Women and Girls is a Philosophy of Actions

WACENA continues to resource High Schools in the rural Uganda with a mission of promoting ICT amongst the rural girls.
And if somebody knows any High School in Eastern Uganda that needs computers, yet with their own power supply, please, feel free to let us know. The emphasis is on educating girls. We have our teams that do teach Video Editing and Shooting.

Because, Information and Computer Technology (ICT) is beyond imaginary themes/theories for global citizenry. It is a philosophy of real actions.

Hi! Thanks for sharing all

Hi!

Thanks for sharing all the pictures of your work. It is great to see more young people having access to computers! Do they have internet access as well?

Your Compliments Appreciated

Hi Mary,
It is always a honor and cause of humbleness to receive compliments of that kind from people who care like you. Thank you very much.

Unfortunately, though, we are still failing to acquire Internet access. And should you be knowing of any charitable Organization that could donate to us such a service, we shall be equally grateful. Nonetheless, we continue pondering about how to surmount the hurdle.

Peace and greetings to you and all friends there with you by name.

Great photos!

Hi Maggie

Thanks for sharing the work that WACENA does with ICT and high schools in Uganda. I love the photos you've included - it gives really great 'picture' of the work that WACENA is doing with high school girls in Uganda. It sounds like a really tangible way to support rural girls to learn more about ICT and implement your philosophy of real actions.

Keep up the great work and best wishes
Dani
