One way to share information and knowledge is to provide in the format that can make a difference in your targeted audience.
The internet has so much information and it requires your audience must be able to read.
Ugandan women are the main farmers and many are not using the internet as we know. Since the objective was to increase the farm yield and improve the crop output. There was little information on the internet to address this need.
What was discovered was the CD Rom were more effective in teaching women farmers on best farming techniques. The classes allowed the women to listen and share ideas. Since many women were not readers, the internet would not have been as effective.
The value of this teaching method, the women have increased the crop production, helped the children in school, increased confidence in farming and brought more money for the community.
When communities learn and can share ideas, everyone benefits and this is an example of each one teach one. This is an example of how many communities in Africa are choosing to use the strength of their community and build on their strengths and share knowledge that best fits the needs of the people.
Here is a way to help others build their community by investing or contributing into peer to peer loans.
