This month the ICT project conducted two training sessions in order to strengthen the skills of community activists by securing their access to computers, smartphone, the internet, and other online tools.
On the first session, held May 22nd, participants learned about the Internet, with a focus on its definition, history, useful tools that are available online, and effective search engine methods. The second session, held on May 30th, focused on E-mail services; its definition, uses, and how to properly create and manage an E-mail address. The participants of the ICT project come from urban poor settlements in Phnom Penh, and many do not have access to the internet, computers or otherwise have the opportunity to learn about standard services such as E-mail.
The overall goal of the ICT Project is to offer training courses to community activists on how to effectively use computers, smartphones and social media to strengthen their knowledge and effectively advocate for human rights and land issues in Cambodia.
