The training of E-TIC is hands-on and aims to respond to specific needs from field:
The training of E-TIC targets two publics:
Extension workers will be trained. These are:
By training extension workers, there will be a multiplying effect yielding lasting results. Training young people and women drives economical and social integration and encourages solidarity within the family unit. Integration will therefore positively impact the families in a relatively short time and consequently have an effect on communities as well. Our training adapts to the situation at hand as it involves a constant coming-and-going between the information collected and given. The role played by the extension workers is crucial at this level as it enables the project to constantly readjust to the needs and constraints at the time. For this purpose, ICV is setting itself the following goals:
Since cultivators spend a substantial amount of time working in the fields, they tend to have a low literacy rate and therefore difficulties in grasping some of the concepts relating to cyber technologies within the set timeframe. However, our project will directly benefit this population thanks to the information communicated to them through our extension workers (women, young people and community radios) and text messages, oral messages and posters.
