KABISSA LAUNCHES NEXT PHASE OF TIME TO GET ONLINE PROJECT IN GHANA

Internet

Following a successful pilot in Nigeria earlier this year, Kabissa—a nonprofit organization that seeks to use technology to strengthen organizations working to improve the lives of people in Africa—has launched the next phase of its TIME TO GET ONLINE project in Ghana. The project is designed to enable West African civil society organizations to use the Internet more effectively in their work.

Kabissa used the experiences of its members and other African nonprofit organizations as a basis for the project. It has learned that many organizations are still unaware of the power of the Internet for the nonprofit sector and remain frustrated by a lack of skills to take advantage of the technology.

In the current phase of the project, Kabissa plans to refine the learning materials and workshop curriculum based on feedback from pilot participants. The most significant change to the workshop format is the addition of an optional day of training, in which participants who are already Kabissa members will have the opportunity to receive training on Kabissa’s Internet services.
