Meet Cheekay …

June 8, 2010 at 8:32 am 5 comments

This is Cheekay Cinco from the Philippines. She has been working with the Association forProgressive Communications (APC)  Women’s Networking Programme and the Strategic Use and Capacity Program for the past 8 years (a dynamic young lady who has no less than 15 tatoos).

In her introduction to the Feminist Practices of Technology in Islamabad yesterday, Cheekay said that in all her years of training men and women in technology, she has found that it is easy to hook young men into buying into a program by just mentioning that it is the latest and coolest technology available. Young women, however, always want to know how the technology they are being asked to learn or adopt can be used to make their own lives better or improve the lives of the people in the communities in which they live.

    Yeah, The women know that sparing money only for a cool and latest thing can’t be a wise decision so they want to know how they can imply the thing into their routine.
