Four institutions of the capital began three training workshops for facilitators and supervisors of digital rooms of the Dominican Telecommunications Institute (Indotel), in order to engage staff of these centers in the fight for the eradication of violence against women in cyberspace (Internet network).

The two workshops was conducted by the Dominican National Commission for UNESCO (CNDU) and the Centre of Research for Female Action (CIPAF), with the support of the Dominican Telecommunications Institute (Indotel) and the National Commission for the Society Information and Knowledge (CNSIC).

The workshops, called "Computer Training Centers (ITC) in the fight against gender violence", are part of the Project "Stop Violence: The contribution of ICTs to end violence against women in the Dominican Republic" , sponsored by UNESCO in the country.

The training sessions focused in the issues of violence against women as an issue of power and inequality, and the role of CCI computer centers in the development of the community while working with a gender perspective, among others.

The workshops, which are held in the multipurpose room of Indotel, will take three days and involved more than 20 supervisors and facilitators of digital screens in the National District and Santo Domingo province.
