Workshop: ESG - Oneworld Website Development Training for NGOs
A four day "Website Development Training Workshop" was organised by ESG in collaboration with Oneworld - South Asia at the software training centre of SASKEN Communication Technologies Ltd., the sponsor, between 18-21st January 2001. Over 15 NGOs and people's organisations participated in the workshop, and achieved the purpose of setting up the trial websites. This was the second such initiative of ESG with Oneworld - South Asia, the first being a similar training conducted 30 October - 1st November 1999 in collaboration with One World (South Asia) and sponsored by Philips Software at its Software Development Centre. Over 20 NGOs from Karnataka and Tamil Nadu had benefited then. Post-workshop training is enabled by way of email discussion groups and by holding refresher courses. The effort is to help build Web Solidarity amongst NGOs and direct stories on a variety of environment, development and human rights initiative onto the One World website. A report on the workshop is available.
