SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT Despite the evolution of new information technologies and communication, the access to these technology tools is still very limited in high schools and universities in Togo. The vast majority of students in schools can’t handle the IT tools. In response to this problem, the NGO ASTOVOT sets up the courses of basic computing skills and internet for three weeks. The modules will be: the discovery of the computer services, the use of a computer, the electronic mail system and the use of social networks. AIMS OF THE WORKCAMP Teach Togolese students how to use computer and social networks. WORK IN THE PROJECT Reception of the students registered for the formation; Implementation of a training program (discover the computer and other tools, training with the keyboard in Word and Excel, creation of an Email account; Initiation in searching information on the internet; how to use social networks). Evaluation of the training program and handing-over of certificates to the participants. NB: Computers are insufficient for training, the volunteers interested by this workcamp are requested to bring their laptops.

They will reside near the project site. Volunteers will sleep on mats made out of plastics or straw. But they can buy or bring along small airbeds or little floor-mats, and a mosquito net… In addition to the project activities, the volunteers can organize rides, meetings with local communities, parties and excursions in the surrounding villages.
