DIGITAL INCLUSION FOR PEOPLE WITH SPECIFIC NEEDS
Digital Inclusion means empowering people through information and communication technologies (ICTs). The Digital Inclusion activities of the BDT are designed to promote ICT accessibility and use for the social and economic development of people with specific needs, including indigenous peoples and people living in rural areas; persons with disabilities; women and girls; and youth and children.
Our work includes sharing information and raising awareness on policies, legislation, regulations and business practices that promote digital inclusion, including through this website, the Girls in ICT Portal, the Connect a School, Connect a Community toolkit, the e-Accessibility toolkit, the Youth Employment and Entrepreneurship Resources Database, our blog, publications and awareness-raising events. This work takes a holistic approach, recognizing that activities for one group also positively impact the other groups.
