Ségou Villages Connection: On An Outreach Tour To Villages In Mali
On the 18th of June, six members of the Ségou villages connection project hopped on in a very old mammywagon towards Dioro and its surrounding villages situated 70 kms away from the town of Ségou. The team carried a solar panel, a battery, two computers, four USB Internet connection keys, some digital cameras and a lot of luggage for the eight day long tour. The participants of the Dioro Village were taught to create email accounts and how to write stories, how to take picture and videos and how to publish posts on blogs. They were also trained how to send sms and Twitter. Read reactions of some of the participants in this feature.
