My passion

My passion for new media and community development earned her an opportunity to work as a Remote intern for the ICT and Innovation programme at The technical centre of Agriculture and rural cooperation ACP-EU (CTA), Netherlands. I have been able to join this wiki and learn more about wikis because of a web 2.0 learning opportunity in Molo that was made financially possible by CTA.

Web 2.0 Learning Opportunity in Molo, Kenya

The web 2.0 learning opportunity forms part of CTA initiatives that support development partners in networking, accessing and diseminating information more effectively. I must say that it is an awesome event that has enlightened me about the power of using the web for development. During the session on wikis, I learned that they are very good in collaborative development and are not vandalized because of the security from the community
