Offer: A practical guide to using ICTs in community programs
Plan International’s Finnish office has just published a thorough user-friendly guide to using ICTs in community programs. The guide has been in development for over a year, based on experiences and input from staff working on the ground with communities in Plan programs in several countries.
The guide is written in plain language and comes from the perspective of folks working together with communities to integrate ICTs in a sustainable way.
It’s organized into 8 sections, each covering a stage of project planning, with additional practical ideas and guidance in the annexes at the end.
1 Assessing the potential of ICTs
2 Assessing the social context for ICTs
3 Assessing the physical context for ICTs
5 Choosing the ICT
6 Planning for sustainability
7 Building capacity
8 Monitoring, evaluation and sharing learning
