The Houndé multimedia center is now functioning on a part-time basis, and FAVL staff Nelly Winkhoum and Boulguissa Zongo hosted two small workshops for six students in May and June 2018. 

Here is the team report for May (translated from French):

On May 19, 2018, a team of FAVL carried out a mission, with the aim of initiating the girls of Douhoun and Karaba to the computer tool and also checking the functioning of the computers present in the center and making an inventory of books. The team welcomed the girls from Douhoun and Karaba, some of whom were accompanied by their parents. The training took place on the premises of the CMH in the presence of our FAVL focal point in Houndé. It came in addition to the activities of the CMH. The objective of this workshop is to give beginners basic training in computer use, to enable people who know how to manipulate the machine to consolidate their knowledge and to have answers to their various questions. For this first training session, the girls were not only amazed, captivated, but followed the lessons attentively and took notes. During the practical exercises, they were all volunteers to write a word or a sentence through this tool which is the computer.

Here is the team report for June (translated from French):

On Friday, June 8th, a team of FAVL went to Houndé for the second phase of the introduction to the girls computer tool. The workshop was held at the CMH on Saturday 9th from 8.30am to 3pm and Sunday from 8.30am to 10.30am.
Through this workshop, girls learned the basics of computer science to use Windows computers. They also learned how to use the keyboard and mouse, how to create Word documents, and how to store them in folders, move and duplicate them. This workshop was closed with an evaluation; and from this evaluation we can deduce satisfactory results. As the CMH is open, they can continue to train and perfect themselves.
