Hi,

I think if you want any constructive help on this subject you've got to start by doing something yourself.
First - analyse the situation you are in and tell us about it. What facilities do you already have. What do you do now. Do you do it well. Is there spare capacity (People and places) to do more etc etc.
What is the environment that you live and work in. Is there scope for development. This is all standard opportunities, threats, strengths and weaknesses stuff. If anyone's done any business training they will know it.
Second - What is your vision of ICT. You must have one to come up with the project. Where do you want to be in 1 year, 5 years, 10 years.
This stuff doesn't have to be exceedingly accurate but to respond to your project with the details that I have is like casting about in fog but we can help in getting from where you are now to where you want to be.

Hope this helps

Geoff

Not everything will be able to be accomplished here. Without substantial work of you and your organization on the ground and detailed consistent communication with volunteers, you will not find results here.
