Project Report | Dec 28, 2023
Latest workshop held in September!

Learning to use keyboard
Learning to use keyboard

Funding for supporting training of young women and girls in using computers is intermittent, and so there has only been one training in the past three months.

Here is the translation of the report (from French):

The association Friends of Village Libraries of Burkina Faso (ABVBF) organized, from September 23 to 24, 2023, an introductory training course for 7 girls in IT tools (the computer). These girls came from Houndé and surrounding areas (Houndé, Koho, Karaba and Dohoun). For 2 days, they received an introduction to the basic elements of this tool alongside their supervisors who are Koura Donkoui and Boué Alidou. They began training by learning the elements that make up the computer as well as the roles of the mouse and the different elements of the keyboard. Then, in a practical way, they learned how to turn a computer on and off. After that, they were introduced to the use of Word: they learned to enter texts and do formatting (how to modify texts): select; change the font and font size; bold, italicize and underline; center, justify, put the text on the left or right. They also practiced making tables, copying and pasting and saving the texts produced, either in a folder or on the desktop. They also had knowledge about creating a folder and how to rename it. On the second day, we quickly recalled the first day. Each participant had plenty of time to practice entering the texts of the CMH books that we made available to them. This was an opportunity for us supervisors to assist them and correct their difficulties. We are satisfied with the results achieved by the participants during the 02 days of training because they received the B.A.BA on the use of the computer. They received their training certificates from the supervisors.
