Malawi Multi-purpose Community Telecentres Project

Project No 7GLO07062
Title Malawi Multi-purpose Community Telecentres Project
Description This project, which is a sub-project of the project "MCT Project for Special Initiative", will support efforts by the Government of Malawi to extend ICT access and services to rural communities by providing basic sets of accessible ICT equipment, facilities and training to rural areas. The facilities will include assistive technologies such as Braille printers and other specific technologies to enhance accessibility to ensure ICTs for all. The final objective is to enable use of ICTs to access better opportunities for education, employment, information on health services, business opportunities including possibilities to live and work with confidence in rural areas thus curtailing the tendency to migrate to urban areas in search of greener pastures.
