The First Step

On Thursday 20/05/09, we started our first training course in  blogging and social network. The team went to All Girls Association in order to prepare the training hall,  hang the banner, check the PCs and ofcourse we did not forget to prepare the break. 


We recieved 14 activists to have the blogging training. We started at 9:00 am. Each trainer talked about her self.

In the First day of training we covered the following topics

1- Creation of blogs in blogger

2- Morals of blogging

3- How to fame the blog

4- Discussion about bloggin and how we can advocate our issues through blogging.

In the next day we covered the following topics:

1- Adding pictures and video from youtube to the blogs

2- Adding calendar to the blogs

3-Orientation about social network and the trainees made facebook accounts and joined the EWAMT Project group.

At the end of the last day, we took a group pictures, and said goodbye to each other; promissed to keep in touch through the blog or facebook.


By the way, the break was deliciuos. Thank you Jamal for preparing the break.
