10-day course for English-speaking participants in June 1999 in Accra, Ghana
Two recent training courses run by CTA on the design of webpages must have finally ended the myth that the Internet is only male, English, and Northern. Almost 20 information co-workers from agricultural NGO and research institutions in The Gambia, Ghana, Nigeria, and Zimbabwe followed a 10-day course for English-speaking participants in June in Accra, Ghana; 14 participants from similar French-speaking bodies in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, attended a similar course in July. Selected by their institutions to manage their websites, these people now carry the unlikely name of 'webmaster' even though almost half are female, as were the trainers.
