"I love saving files. You cannot lose those files once you save them. When you write you lose the paper, but when you save on a computer, it cannot be changed or lost." - Olive, 56, Covanya
Thanks to the generosity of the global law firm Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, Indego Africa administers computer training programs at many of its partner cooperatives.
Before Indego Africa, almost none of the women had seen a computer. They now use their new skills to draft Word documents and harness Excel to run their businesses. Training on the internet allows the women to stay in touch with their children, conduct their own market research, and communicate with the U.S. Computer skills are not only invaluable for future job placement opportunities, but they also promote confidence, pride, and a fellowship with the online global community.
