Overwhelming Users turn up at E-Society this year 2011


2011 has began as a year of tremendous change at the E-Society (Kasese district Local government).
The E-Society resource center with technical back up from RIC-NET , at the begining of this year became so busy that the staff decided to modify the timings for their users who at times wait out especially in the morning hours. This was found out as an indication that people are getting more light about the usage of ICT tools.

"I regret for having not known the existence of this wonderful service here earlier than this, but never the less am here still to utilise the facility.Thanks alot to the management for this wonderful initiative"said one of the students of the computer literacy class at the center (E-Society).
More students have been enrolling for these classes almost everyday to get knowledge about the use of web 2.0 tools and computer applications. These students among others include primary school heads and their teachers, vaccation students, pastors and many more. the number has increased this year compared to last year.

There is hope that more and more users are coming besides the computer literacy class since the center offers other services like internet access to KDLG staff and the entire surrounding community, printing, photo copying, scanning, guidance and assistance to its users.
