|Title||Multipurpose Community Telecentres for Rural & Underserved areas of Sierra Leone|
This project aims at providing access to telecommunication/ICT services to five identified and selected rural and underserved areas of Sierra Leone, namely Kambia, Makeni, Segbwema, Pujenhun and Mile 91 through the establishment of Multipurpose Telecommunication Centers (MCTs).
These MCTs will provide suitable services and applications to local communities which will enable them to make use of ICTs in their social and economic activities in order to improve their living conditions. The project will also make it possible for these isolated communities to have reliable community based services such as e-learning, e-health, e-commerce and e-government when these are implemented in future.
In addition, a capacity building program will be specifically designed and implemented in order to ensure sustainable operations and maintenance of the centers.
