Internship Opportunity at CTA
Web 2.0 and Social Media for Development

During the period 2009-2013, CTA successfully
implemented a series of training events known as
Web 2.0 and Social Media Learning
Opportunities in 23 ACP (Africa, Caribbean, and
Pacific) countries. This resulted in approximately
2200 trained people, 38% of whom women.
Feedback from beneficiaries (individuals and
institutions) has been extremely positive. In May
2013 the project was awarded the WSIS Project
Prize 2013 in the category e-agriculture.
Each event lasts for 5 days and accommodates
approximately 25-28 trainees, who are selected,
based on applications submitted after an open call.
