We'll build a computer center with 20 computers in Neves' community (Lembá's district) in order to provide free access to information resources and provide training through workshop sessions and lectures. Workshop sessions will be used to address more practical issues on how to use basic tools, such as Word, Powerpoint or Excel and also about creating a website, an e-mail or a Skype account. The lectures will be held for 5 weeks on fridays with themes such as the advantages of using these technologies both academic and professionally, potentialities for business, the importance of maintaining a system of information and a good database. These session will be called "Digital Fridays". Additionally we'll train two people who will be responsible for the maintenance of the center and to disclose the subsequent online courses.
This project was developed in the course of social entrepreneurship, organized by NGO WACT - We are changing together.
