1. NEW HIGHLIGHT: Digital Video Conference: U.S. Embassy, Liberia       
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In May 2006 the Women's Studies Program at Northeastern University (NU)
in Boston conducted a digital videoconference with the U.S. State
Department in Liberia for the purpose of discussing exchange and partners
hip potential between the U.S. University and Liberian nationals working
in development. Recently has been in the news highlighting the election
of Africa's first woman President, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and the
extradition of former President Charles Taylor to The Hague regarding alleged
crimes against humanity. BBC/NPR news of recent sex-for-food scandals
involving young Liberian girls has prompted investigation of possible
human rights abuses.

As the formerly failed state attempts to rebuild its infrastructure,
the plight of women has been targeted as a primary focus of need,
particularly issues of violence, rape, and poverty. Featured at the NU/State
Department DVC were faculty, graduate students, staff, and community
activists from the Boston area. From the U/S. Embassy in Monrovia ,
college presidents, members of the Liberian Congress, and NGO officials all
participated on a two-hour televised consultation on ways to pursue
formal bi-lateral relationships through internships, exchanges, and other
capacity building. The Women's Studies Program (Boston) was extended the
invitation by the Embassy following a successful conference on "Women
War and Violence" held on the Northeastern University campus in late
March 2006.

6. DEVELOPMENT GATEWAY AWARD: 2006 theme - "ICT for the Empowerment of
Youth" 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Global Prize for IT Benefiting Youth in Developing Countries; Call for
Nominations for US$100,000 Development Gateway Award

Sponsored by Intel Corporation

Vancouver, Canada, June 19, 2006 - The Development Gateway Foundation
is calling for nominations for its US$100,000 prize for outstanding
achievement in the use of information and communication technologies to
improve lives in developing countries. Sponsored in part by Intel
Corporation, this year's Development Gateway Award is focusing on initiatives
that empower or improve the conditions of youth. 

The award will be launched here today (June 19, 2006) at the United
Nations' World Urban Forum III, at a special reception for youth
participants following the close of this weekend's World Youth Forum.  Both
events have gathered people from around the world to focus on critical
development issues.

Both individuals and organizations are eligible to apply for the award.
Applicants must demonstrate that their initiatives are successful,
sustainable and replicable. The initiatives must also show significant
impact on youth in areas that are important to social and economic
development, such as employment, education, health or agriculture.  

"Better access to basic information or services through technology can
change the life of a poor person," said Mark Fleeton, Chief Executive
Officer, Development Gateway Foundation. "As first adopters of new
technologies, young people in urban areas can often benefit most quickly. As
entrepreneurs, they are also critical to spreading the benefits across
their communities and to the rest of the world."  

In 2005 the award was presented to the ITC eChoupal program in India
for its overall contribution to development. eChoupal has helped increase
the incomes and productivity of millions of farmers by giving them more
direct access to markets, as well as pricing and product information,
via village-based Internet kiosks. eChoupal is now expanding its service
to include education. 

For full award criteria and to access an online application, please go
to www.developmentgateway.org/award. The application deadline is August
11.
