Details

The project will organize basic computer training sessions for young Kon Hong Sar members to improve their computer literacy. Many KHS members find it unfamiliar to work with computers despite their relatively high education status and therefore, Kon Hong Sar sees it necessary to educate them to expand the youth activities of the organization within the Mon state. Once the younger members of KHS achieve certain level of computer skills, it will benefit them to network with each other more efficiently through e-mails and to contribute to the KHS activities such as creating newsletters or journals. It will also prepare them for the future when they enter the professional fields.                                                                       

Your can contribute to the costs of training sessions for the young KHS members.

Progress Update

The computer course took place from 1st to 31st May 2013. Twelve young women led by two trainers worked daily on gaining basic understanding of computers and some essential programs. In the first week, the group learned to type. In the following weeks, they mastered MS Word, Publisher and Powerpoint. They also learned how to work with USB memory stick and how to open and use an email account. The course took place in somewhat cramped conditions and with borrowed laptops but the participants made up in enthusiasm what may have lacked in material equipment. They especially focused on skills that will help them to create newsletters, flyers and other materials for the Kon Hong Sar organization.
