Empowering women through ICT

Each project is presented within their local context, with detailed country profiles provided. The impact of the project on women is discussed at length before each section concludes with a summation of the challenges faced and a way forward. Themes that arose from the projects’ feedback and assessments included the empowering potential of ICT for women, and its ability to combine with traditional knowledge to archive and communicate skills for future generations. Literacy rates were improved among those women who participated, and the training allowed activists to then spread skills further to others.
