Women need Family Planning education

The increasing frequency of computer lessons for women and girls have exposed one big issue that hinder women from pursuing productive careers outside the home.
Unplanned pregnancies, poor child spacing and teenage pregnancies have seen a high number of women turning up for lessons with children or heavy with pregnancy. The result is poor participation and limited concentration.
The Creative Centre for Communcation and Development's computer literacy programme is exposing women and girls to computers while developing their professional lives and increasing their access to information and their power to use and control ICTs.
One of the women who attended the training has already secured a job in an ICT shop where she is responsible for typing documents, photocopying, printing and binding documents for clients.
