Jinan from Mafraq mentioned that she recently received a grant from MEPI and started handicrafts projects and she intends to develop videos once she receives the flip camera. She mentioned that she lives almost 90 km away from Mafraq and women are not encouraged to attend the training programs in her village...with her Facebook page and videos to be developed, she hopes she will be able to communicate the benefits and if women are not to attend the workshops then maybe they can start something of their own in their own villages. Trainees realize the power of social media, however, limited internet access and modest infrastructure at NGOs is a challenge.
