    women should know that there no late to learn, to be educated, to be informed, it need just courage to start and ICT does not need to have a diploms, you can if you want. try and you will see. I would not believe to myself when I see what I am doing with Telecommunications now, it is fantastic.

    ICT INVOLVES WOMEN, CHANGE MENTALITIES, TRAVEL IN THE WORLD WITHOU MOVING, BUT TO HAVE THAT PRIVILEGE, YOU NEED A COMPUNTER, TO GET AN EDUCATION, FORMATION. WITH ICT YOU CAN PLAN EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE

    to grow in ICT: 1) get a computer
    2) get a formation/education
    3) enter into a network and use it positively to learn and to gain exposure

    telecommunication is indespensable to developement because people need to be aware of what is happening. if information is circulated, only then can help or any other thing come in. the fun part is....net2 is free and accessable to n'importe qui.

    things that facilitate foreign aid is the number and the urgency. however it is still easy to obtain aid if u group yourself and form a common interest group. this can earn you more trust much more faster
