I am pleased with the way technology is being embraced by the women in the rural areas in the Northern part of Uganda where Bosco Uganda operates. This is the area that was terribly affected by the war between the government of Uganda and the Lord Resistant Army (LRA). But nevertheless the women in these areas have appreciated technology and are also having a different mind-set and attitude towards technology and the internet. Though initially technology was looked at as a demon.

What amuses me the most is the old women in these areas putting interest in learning computer which was termed as a mystery box. When the young girls in the villages see the old women embracing technology, they get inspired and motivated to also welcome and appreciate technology. And with the advantages of technology and the internet realised, it has made the men to also encourage their sisters and wives to learn these technologies.
