INTRODUCTION:
Technological innovation is taking place at a breath-taking pace. Simple, open source internet-based applications and services designed to enhance on-line collaboration are now available to the wider public at little or no cost at all. These new online technologies known as Web2.0 and Social Media applications enable people to collaborate, to create, share and publish information.

According to FAO’s Rural Youth and Young Farmers report, opportunities for learning practical skills in agriculture, better rural living, and income-generating activities are extremely limited. For youth and young farmers, access to production resources, credit and employment is almost non-existent in most countries.

This Agritech4Dev Global Twitter Chat will discuss and bring to the attention of Agribusiness Entrepreneurs the availability of web2.0 technologies and how they can be utilized to promote and market a youth-led Agribusiness Venture quickly, cheaply and efficiently.

Lastly, this Agritech4Dev Global Twitter Chat is Organized by Youths In Technology and Development (www.yitedev.org) and Bishop Stuart University (www.bsu.ac.ug) in collaboration with: CTA (www.cta.int); GODAN (www.godan.info); NetSquared (www.netsquared.org); Master Card Foundation (https://mastercardfdn.org/) and TechSoup Global (www.techsoup.org)

None of the Students of Amudat Secondary School in Karamoja of over 400 students has an email address

DSC06379Today we have been able to train Amudat Secondary School Students how to signup and operate personal email accounts. A School of over 400 students, none of them has an email address. Though there some computers, students have no access as all computers broke down and there is no technician in the area to help them. This school is found in Karamoja which is over 400 miles from Kampala Capital city (Capital of Uganda). This is mostly a pastoral community and the only way this community can be helped is to be connected to the world wide web. Good enough, there is both G3 and G4 Internet network.
