Allan Kakinda of SchoolNet/iEARN-Uganda will be chairing a panel session on "Initiatives That Empower Youth Session," at the eLearning Africa Conference in Windhoek, Namibia (Thursday, May 30, 2013, 16:45 - 18:15)

What happens when young African students, employed and unemployed, seize the opportunities that new technologies open up? Speakers in this session present examples of how ICT enable youth to find their own voice, tell their own stories and claim their own spaces for personal development.

Qu’advient-il dès lors que les jeunes étudiants africains, employés et chômeurs, saisissent les opportunités offertes par les nouvelles technologies ? Durant cette session, les intervenants présentent des exemples dévoilant la manière dont les TIC permettent aux jeunes de trouver leur propre voie, raconter leurs propres histoires et revendiquer leurs espaces pour un développement personnel.
