  6. Why Should We Network? How can I possibly know everything?
  7. “W.TEC is a Nigerian non-governmental organization working for the economicand social empowerment of girls and women, using information andcommunication technologies (ICTs). We have chosen to focus on this areabecause statistical evidence has shown that in most African countries, women’suse and knowledge of ICTs (to store, share, organize and process information) islower than men’s, denying them of income-generating opportunities and thechance to network with others.”
