Information about the project
Local Mobile ICT Centers: An ICDL Certification Tool
Mobile ICT Centers are five (05) ICT equipped buses intended to provide local rural populations, especially women and unemployed youth populations, appropriate access to ICT’s so as to offer them training, information, new prospects of communication and access to networking in order to improve their living conditions, their level of qualification, and more opportunities to employment. As part of the first part of the project, five of these fully functional buses are already functional in five southern Algerian regions, namely Adrar, Illizi, Tamenraset, Naama and Djelfa. The new added feature to the program is that the Local Mobile ICT centers integrated an ICDL Certification Tool. In fact, as a world premiere with respect to ICDL certification (International Computer Driving License), the five (05) ICT equipped buses have been approved as ICDL training and testing centers.
National implementation: Algeria
Ongoing from 2013 to 2016
