Mom 2.0 Cafe Session 1
Today we had our first session with mothers and women from the Cape Flats. For many its a new experience to be engaging with technology but they are very excited about the possibilities. More than 20 women were present and we know that this is the beginning of greater things in our communities.
The topic that was discussed today was "What is a Blog?". It was interesting to hear the perceptions of the women what they thought a Blog is. In the end we realised it is a tool that can be used to express oneself and to empower others through sharing your stories, experiences, news and commentary. It was also good to see some of the Reconstructed Team with their mothers and empowering them with technology. So much to look forward to. Watch out for the Mom 2.0 blog soon for exciting stories of the women in these communities.
Our next Cafe session will be 10 October and contact us if you are interested in supporting this initiative.
