I hosted a workshop: “Digital Highway to Independence for social and economic development” at the 3rd World Conference of Women’s Shelters on 4th of November in the Hague, Netherlands. The dignitaries included Queen Maxima of the Netherlands and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark.
The workshop explored how digital technology is transforming hopes and dreams into reality. The workshop explored how after a traumatic experience, there is an opportunity for positive personal growth. The main aim was to explore women empowerment though the power of digital media for social and economic progress by providing a platform where they can share their experiences, learn and develop new ICT skill sets which can turn into earning income. This allows women to break free from the cycle of helplessness. [Link]
