These sessions are repeated from day one, to allow those who attended alternative sessions on either day to have a chance to rotate through the workshops.

The Community Networks (CN) workshop aims to introduce women and girls to the foundation concepts of community networks and provide basics of how to apply these concepts for starting and managing women-led community networks. The workshop will also help raise awareness of the potential of community networks to close the digital (gender) divide. It will provide a space for women government leaders and policy makers to think of ways they can help in advocating for gender responsive policies that support women who are championing community networks in Africa.
Ces sessions sont répétées dès le premier jour, pour permettre à ceux qui ont assisté à des sessions alternatives un jour de l’autre d’avoir la possibilité de suivre en alternance les ateliers.

L'atelier Réseaux communautaires (CN) a pour objectif d'initier les femmes et les filles aux concepts de base des réseaux communautaires et de leur expliquer comment appliquer ces concepts au lancement et à la gestion de réseaux communautaires dirigés par des femmes. L'atelier contribuera également à sensibiliser le public au potentiel des réseaux communautaires pour réduire la fracture numérique (genre). Il fournira un espace aux femmes chefs de gouvernement et aux décideurs politiques pour qu'elles réfléchissent à des moyens d'aider à plaider en faveur de politiques tenant compte de la problématique hommes-femmes qui soutiennent les femmes défendant les réseaux communautaires en Afrique.
