The use of digital technology recommended to Congolese women to accommodate globalisation

Kinshasa, March 11th, 2023 (CPA).-  Women in the Democratic Republic of Congo were recommended on Friday, in an interview with CPA, to use digital technology to accommodate aspects related to the globalisation, on the side-lines of the International Women’s Rights Day.

« It is quite normal that we ask the Congolese woman to be interested in digital technology because, without it, there is no evolution regardless of the sector of activity. It will be necessary to familiarise oneself with this tool in order to hope for eventual development, » said the president of the Association of Women Architects of Congo (AFARC), Caroline Pindi.

« As a woman architect, I use digital technology. Either to design my projects or for my bank transfers. It is an essential tool for all trades, » she added.

Speaking about the disadvantages of digital technology in the lives of young people, Ms. Pindi, who is also the president of the association  »Mille et un espoir (MIES) or a thousand and one hopes », noted the fact that some of them indulge in obscene practices, while others let themselves be entertained to such a degree that they become more and more unable to work at the level of their skills.

She also called on school officials to ensure better learning for learners in order to manage the digital tool properly.

For the 2023 edition, the national theme chosen was: « egalitarian digital education for peace and empowerment of women and girls in DRC« , she said.

Created in 2006, the Association of Women Architects of Congo (AFARC) aims to supervise women architects and initiate projects of general interest carried out by them for the benefit of the Republic. For the NGO  »Mille et Un Espoir » which was born on November 24th, 2018, its mission is to campaign for the respect of the rights of women and children in DRC.
