Girls’ Computer Literacy & Leadership Program (Burkina Faso)

Burkina Faso

Titre : Girls’ Computer Literacy & Leadership Program (Burkina Faso)

Pays : Burkina Faso

Date : Date non précisée

At the moment, there is little access to computers in Hounde, and no computer training available for local high school students. However, technical skills are widely sought in larger cities as the world becomes more technologically literate and are important for students who wish to get ahead. Girls, in particular, have less opportunities to obtain computer skills and often lack the confidence to seek out these opportunities. This project will focus on 50 girls who attend local high schools.

Ten local high school girls will be invited to attend five one-month long computer training workshops (for a total of 50 girls). They will learn basic computer literacy skills : how to use a mouse, type and use Microsoft Word, Publisher and Excel. They will use this knowledge to create their own poems, novels and illustrations in order to entertain, educate and empower other girls in their community. The books will be distributed to village libraries and will also be available for purchase

The 50 girls who participate in the program will receive skills that will help them tackle the complicated issue of gender equality. They will learn basic computer skills and begin to understand the publishing process as they produce their own works. This will help them develop technical skills, better express themselves and practice critical thinking. These books will help Burkinabe girls to have access to relatable books and be inspired to add their voices to the national conversation.
