GENDER AND TELECENTRE
The question of gender is a vital issue for all developmental issues.Considering this,
I felt the necessity of creating a group under the title GENDER AND TELECENTRE to honour and inspire particularly the women who
are working side by side with their male counterparts in the ICT and telecentre sectors. Unless the roles and particiapation of gender are not recognized and appreciated the holistic development may never be achieved.Besides, a sense of trust will be developed among the women when their roles will be recognized with respect and in turn this will help promote our telecentre.org.
The objectives which I contemplated for this purpose are placed for the benign consideration of the learned members of telecentre.org and all concerned persons.
The objectives are:
1.To study or review the gender based telecentre activities globally and locally from various
sources and publish them for the knowledge of the members and development of telecentres.
2.Identify the gender based problems that hinder the progress of telecentres and take
appropriate measures to overcome the problems.
3.To inspire the women for greater participation in the telecentre activities.
4.To identify the women scientists,technologists,entrepreneurs,organizers and leaders for
their outstanding contributions for the development of telecentres and honour them as
FEATURED PERSONS IN TELECENTRE INITIATIVES.
I take the opportunity to invite all learned members and interested persons to kindly provide comments and feedbacks to help develop an effective group comprising the gender in the light of telecentres.
