The evolving tech landscape has highlighted the relevance of internet connectivity and platforms like websites and social media pages in accessing relevant information. Connectivity is more important than ever and as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic the world’s reliance on internet platforms to access critical information, services and opportunities has never been greater. The ‘Amplified’ project seeks to promote inclusiveness, civil and social rights, and fundamental liberties among women, persons with disabilities, youths, older persons, faith-based groups, and the wider community in Eastern Uganda.
1. Design and develop websites for organisations that advocate for the rights of marginalized communities to amplify their voices and raise awareness of their causes.
2. Provide training to effectively use these platforms: In addition to website development, the project seeks to empower CSOs with the knowledge and skills to effectively manage their online platforms. This includes training on how to create and manage website content, optimize user experience, and engage with their audience through social media and other digital channels.
3. Provide digital security skills and knowledge: As part of the training, the project we equip marginalised communities with digital security skills and knowledge to protect themselves and their audiences from cyber threats.
