Need: Seeking Expert Volunteers to Support New Media Women`s Empowerment Center in Cameroon
Digital illiteracy is very high amongst women in Cameroon and a majority of those who are versed with the internet are not maximizing its benefits due to ignorance. It has been proven that when women go online with the right training, they are able to improve their lives and those of other members of their communities.
The goal of this center is to provide women with free basic computer skills and information on how to navigate the internet and make use of resourceful sites like World Pulse.
The center would provide a citizen journalism training program to all trainees with the intent of providing them with the skills they need to tell their own stories and ignite change in their communities.This would be a center for the transformation of victims into change makers through the power of technology.
Free Entrepreneurial training would also be offered to those interested in business so that they can be able to explore business opportunities online.
Taking women away from the hurdles of a society which imposes all forms of violence against them into safe spaces online where they are accepted,encouraged and celebrated is a sure way of empowering them.
The center would create a change in the lives of over 20.000 women and girls who would be offered free computer training and internet time.
