|Title||Zambia multi-Purpose Community Telecentres|
The Government of Zambia intends to provide access to telecommunication/ICT services to nine rural communities in Zambia through establishment of Multipurpose Telecommunity Centers (MCTs). This project relates to five of these nine sites to be supported by ITU.
These MCTs will provide suitable ICT services and applications to rural communities and will include assistive and specific technologies (such as braille printers, software for visually impaired person, hearing aids software) to enhance accessibility ICTs for all, including people with disabilities.
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. This move will also enhance MCTs sustainability by developing a pool of competences that will allow deployment of regional wide-revenue-generating activities.
