Organization Name: Fantsuam Foundation

[Africa - Nigeria]

Fatsuam Foundation

Fantsuam Foundation's overall objective is to promote access to ICT facilities and skills' training among women in rural communities in Nigeria. In partnership with these communities, the Foundation is setting up Community Learning Centres (CLCs), where trainings and access to ICT equipment is provided. The BayanLoco Community Learning Centre has been the most successful among the CLCs and received the first African Hafkin Prize. Part of the monetary award was set aside to provide scholarships to women and girls who enrolled in IT skills training at the Centre.
GEM evaluation was used to find out if the services provided in the CLC contribute to women and girls' empowerment. One of the main questions raised in their evaluation was how the CLC was able to address the biases and fears of women in relation to ICTs.Read more
