The purpose of this project is to address the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) problem facing women in Bukoba, a rural area of Tanzania, and in doing so, gain valuable information for projects of a larger scale in Tanzania and elsewhere. The goal is to educate rural women on the value and utilization of ICT to strengthen their capacity as micro-business women and agents of change in their communities. Through internet access, the women will be able to avail themselves of health and business information, network among themselves to strengthen their cooperative enterprises, and increase the sustainability of their micro-enterprises.
