TIME TO GET ONLINE WEBSITE GOES LIVE, OFFERS LEARNING MATERIALS
Kabissa has launched a new web site for its Time to Get Online project. It is an Internet capacity-building project for West African civil society organizations that that was launched in November 2002. Initially, it targeted organizations in West Africa whose main agenda concerns human rights, freedom of information, responsive government and democratization. A set of self-learning materials has been developed to help civil society activists and organizers to get online and to integrate the Internet into their organizations. The materials can be used as both a self-taught curriculum and as a reference guide for users with varying levels of Internet experience and expertise. The materials are available for download for African civil society organizations. Local workshops serve as a supplement to the learning materials and give organizations the opportunity for hands-on learning.
