Ramata Sore

I'm Ramata Soré from West Africa. I'm a Burkinabe journalist, who lives and works in Burkina Faso. In 2001 I got a masters in information and communication sciences and techniques at the University of Ouagadougou where I continued studying and, in 2002, completed a DESS in environmental sciences and specialised in multimedia. This explains my interest in ICTs and the reason I joined Yam Pukri, a Burkina ICT Association, and APC-Women (Association for Progressive Communications). All these organisations strive to help Africans understand the new technologies.

I try to convey my interest in ICTs to other journalists by teaching.

I have received awards in various subjects related to these technologies, and edit a page on this issue periodically in my journal called L’Événement. I have a personal blog:
