Project URL
Brief Description The purpose of this project is to establish a community multi-media centre on Grenada's west coast, with a view to improving the communicative capacity of rural women and youth to access the information they need to participate in national dialogues and democratic decision-making processes affecting their livelihoods. The centre will provide communication services, and offer training to at least 40 rural women and youth in ICT skills such as website development, audio and videotaping, and Internet. The project will also support the array of training programmes and vital information that GRENCODA, an NGO that has been working in rural development since 1985, currently provides to rural women and youth by editing and documenting training experiences into self-learning multimedia packages. Finally, it will provide services to at least 40 local producers in desktop publishing.
