Information & Communication Technology Resource Centers (ICTRCs) Program is an initiative that focuses on improving lifelong learning for disadvantaged youth and adults by providing technology skills through low cost Information & Communication Technology Resource Centers (ICTRCs). WEP, in complete participation of donor, community or the respective institution establishes computer labs with complete self-sustainable solution and curriculum for running the ICTRCs in educational institutions. Every established ICTRC works as a computer lab in school hours for the education of regular enrolled students and as a Community Technology Learning Centre (CTLC) after school hours. The very same ICTRC also provides ICT training to the teaching staff of the same educational institution as well as teachers of the neighboring schools.
WEP believes that by providing technical skills training to disadvantaged individuals, it can create synergies of social and economic opportunities that can change people’s lives and transform communities. Ultimately, WEP is helping to bridge the global technology gap by providing the guidance and gear people need to realize their talent. WEP ICTRCs Program is exclusively for the community schools located in rural areas with special focus on female education. This improves the quality of education for students, ensuring equal gender access. We could rightly say it a sound investment that helps nation and deprived communities to develop economically and socially.
