Hi Leo,
Thanks for the response. With regard to the tablets, I actually meant tablet computers with preloaded programs that the participants can use during the training period.....

What a commendable project!
I am currently based as a postdoc in South Africa but I happen to have half of my family living in Uganda at the moment.
I would like to point out that there are very many educated but unemployed youth in Uganda. I would suggest coming up with a way that UniTED can train a certain number of people who can then administer the workshops. This might help with the access to rural areas.
Have you thought of incorporating e-learning programs on tablets as part of your training?
I'd love to get involved with UniTED, please email me on Nzioki@ukzn.ac.za
I look forward to hearing from you.

Just the other day I mentioned that something similar to your idea would be needed at my university. I certainly could have benefited from it during my student days. Congratulations and hope that the project will take off soon and eventually be utilised internationally. (I currently reside in South Africa).
