The GenARDIS small grants fund was initiated in 2002 by CTA, IICD and IDRC, to
support work on gender-related issues in ICTs for ACP agricultural and rural
development. The programme was developed in recognition of the constraints and
challenges encountered by rural women in ACP countries with respect to ICTs.
The challenges include cultural factors that hinder women's access to ICTs,
limited time availability to participate in training and use of ICTs, minimal
access to technology such as radios, mobile telephones or computers, and
inadequate availability of information in local languages that is relevant to
local contexts.
