CAPETOWN / Cape Town, South Africa Project Program

Abstract

The digital divide in access to and understanding of computers is an issue for developing communities worldwide, especially for adult women. We worked with members of Sizakuyenza's Women's Networking Group to address this divide in the township of Philippi, Cape Town. Our team created an asset map of technology access points in local communities and facilitated a pilot technology training program. We developed a plan to continue this program by composing a proposal to obtain funds to fully establish it.
