An Evaluation of Buwama CMC and Kawolo Telecentre from a Gender Perspective

Summary


Telecentres were established to promote rural access to information so as to foster rural development. However, technologies are socially constructed and thus have different impacts on women and men. Women’s capacity to exploit the potential of the new ICTs as tools for empowerment is constrained in different ways. Some constraints are linked to factors that affect both women and men for instance technical infrastructure, connection costs, computer literacy and language skills, exacerbated in many cases by gender based determinants which particularly disadvantage women.Read more

La GEM en temps difficiles : Comment mettre fin à la violence sectaire

Depuis le mois de janvier, le Nigeria est déchiré par les conflits sectaires. « Il y a eu une inhumation en fosse commune avant-hier et on compte près de trois cents corps, dont plus de 80 % de femmes et d’enfants » a indiqué John Dada, membre d'APC, à APC. « Quelle ironie qu'en ce mois de célébration de la Journée de la femme, de telles atrocités soient commises envers des femmes et des enfants innocents ». Les femmes sont culturellement respectées puisque ce sont elles qui donnent la vie, et si John rejette la faute de ce bouleversement culturel à la pauvreté croissante et l’isolement économique, il entrevoit tout de même des solutions possibles.

Peru's farmers lack information: Why are telecentres being underused?

Smallholders in the desert region of Huaral depend on irrigation cooperatives to water their crops. For ten years one coop association has been developing an information system based on telecentres to help them to make informed agricultural decisions. But the system is being under-utilised and they decided to find what was going wrong. Using APC's Gender Evaluation Methodology (GEM) they found that older people and women over 40 were being left behind. While decision-making spaces are still mainly all-male, at least some issues identified by women are now on the table.Read more

GEM in Hard Times: Sectarian violence in Nigeria can be beaten

Women of JosKAFANCHAN (John Dada, Fantsuam Foundation for APC) - Since January, sectarian strife has ripped through Nigerian communities.  “A mass burial took place the day before yesterday and body counts are close to three hundred with over 80% of them women and children,” APC member John Dada told APC. “It is ironic that in the month of the Celebration of Women’s Day, such atrocities are being visited on innocent women and children.” Women are culturally respected as the givers of life and John blames deepening poverty and economic alienation for the cultural reversal but he sees a potential solution.Read more

L'internet, écoliers et Pakistan rural : comment assurer le soutien de la communauté

CALGARY (LC et KAH pour APC) - Au Pakistan rural, les écoles de filles sont parfois brulées jusqu'au sol, alors lorsque la jeune Huda Sarfraz de vingt-neuf ans a commencé à enseigner des écolières du Punjab comment créer des sites web et utiliser le chat en ligne, elle craignait se faire chasser des villages. Toutefois, les filles s'y sont intéressées autant que les gars et – bouleversant les mœurs de leur société – se sont sur-inscrites aux cours extra-curriculaires – et ont finit par produire des sites web gagnants. Grâce à la Méthodologie d'évaluation du gendre (GEM) d'APC, et malgré les défis culturels, Sarfraz et son équipe se sont assurer en particulier d'impliquer les femmes et les filles. "Au début, nous voyions seulement deux groupes – étudiants et professeurs. Mais grâce à la GEM, nous avons appris à les voir comme quatre groupe – écolières, écoliers, enseignantes et enseignants", explique Sarfraz.Read more

Internet, schoolchildren and rural Pakistan: How to get community buy-in including for girls

School girls in Pakistan during a computer classCALGARY (LC and KAH for APC) – In rural Pakistan girls schools are sometimes burned to the ground, so when twenty-nine year old Huda Sarfraz and her team started to teach Punjabi girls how to create websites and use online chat, she feared they might be run out of town. However the girls clamoured to learn as much as the boys did and --overturning societal taboos-- over-subscribed for the extra-curricular classes – ending up producing prize-winning websites. As a result of exposure to APC's Gender Evaluation Methodology (GEM), and despite their own cultural reservations, Sarfraz's team focused specifically on getting girls and women teachers involved. “Initially, we only saw two groups to work with -- students and teachers. However because of GEM, we looked at them as four—girl students, boy students, women teachers and men teachers,” says Sarfraz.
