We are pleased to announce that the Women's Rights Campaigning: Info-Activism Toolkit is now available in Arabic, Kiswahili, and Hindi.
Launched in English in January 2014, the Toolkit will soon also be available in Bangla.
The Toolkit, developed by Tactical Tech with support from CREA (under its FLOW-funded initiative--New Voices/New Leaders: Women Building Peace and Reshaping Democracy), is a guide for women's rights activists, advocates, NGOs, and community-based organisations who want to use technology tools and practices in their campaigning.
The Toolkit includes campaign basics, strategies, and digital tools, as well as a wide range of inspiring case studies from around the world, which activists at all levels of technological literacy would find useful in their work.
Please share this amongst your communities and send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
