Information about the project
CYPTEC on Wheels Project
This is a mobile van fitted with computers, which moves from one region to another to bring awareness among the disadvantaged sections of society. This helps train the unemployed youth force and provides them with better job opportunities. They learn the basics of ICT and enhance their skills, thus enabling them to contribute in the national economic growth as well as their individual/family economic growth. Since inception of this project the CYP Asia Centre has set up three mobile centres. The CYPTEC on wheels has also been replicated in Pakistan in August 2006 in collaboration with the Ministry of Youth Affairs, Pakistan.
