The main goal of the project named “Internet Democracy Support for West Africa” is to enable unfettered Internet access by inhabitants of countries whose regimes restrict freedom of expression, freedom of the press, democracy and human rights. The aim of the training seminars is to teach groups of people deemed to be “at risk” (journalists, social media activists, human rights and democracy advocates) how best to use Counter-Censorship technologies. Following the seminars, participants will be integrated into the program’s secure online network. They will continue to be provided with regular updates and new versions of the technologies with which they were familiarized at the training seminars. At the end of this project, many more human rights and democracy advocates in West Africa will have the tools and knowledge they need to securely circumvent current Internet censorship and surveillance technologies.
