As Burkina Faso re-opens, the FAVL media center in Houndé has resumed training sessions for young women in using computers. The sessions are held on Saturday afternoons, and involve a variety of basic computer functions. The goal is to demystify computers, by enabling young women from villages without electricity or computer access to learn how to turn computers on, open word processing software, type documents, save, print, etc. All the basics, and the idea is that exposure gives some more confidence to these young women who have limited opportunities in their villages. Participants receive a small stipend. The trainers also encourage reading during and after the sessions. The longer-term goal is that perhaps some of the young women might try their hand at writing a small story that can then be illustrated and published in the media center.
