Mr Saul Pila from SchoolNet South Africa facilitated the first workshop for Women and Girls in South Africa sponsored by Intel Corporation. The participants comprised a group of visitors from Zimbabwe who are all experienced Intel trainers and a diverse group of members from the South African Women’s Entrepreneurship Network (SAWEN)
Thabani Khupe representing Intel Corporate Affairs who were the sponsors of the event welcomed delegates to the workshop. The course materials, Intel Learn: Easy Steps have been developed by Intel for use in communities where adults need to acquire or improve their ICT skills in order to more competently and efficiently manage their businesses.
Members from both groups of participants had interesting backgrounds. The SAWEN group hailed from all parts of South Africa and ranged from people with entrepreneurial concepts that were yet to be realised, across a wide spectrum, to people who were successful business
The training ended on a high note with delegates promising to stay in touch and provide updates on training in Zimbabwe.
