Gender and ICT Girl Child Camps.

13 04 2009

Women of Uganda Network (WOUGNET) in collaboration with Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) have written a new chapter in ICT for Women through the Gender and ICT Girl Child camps.

The camps are aimed at improving on the computer literacy of secondary school girls in the three regions of Northern, Eastern and Western Uganda. The Camps are to be held during the school term.

In the recent Eastern Region Gender and ICT Girl Child Camp in Mbale, over 6 schools (all from the Eastern Uganda) participated in the 2 day camp.

The 150 or so girls who participated in the camp had hands on training on Introduction to Computers, and presentations from the Uganda Communications Commission and Women of Uganda Network about communication policies and Gender and ICT respectively.

The girls were also sensitized about the Gender Issues in the country and world at large.

More camp to take place during the next school term.
