Learning Corners in Rodrigues
Under the Community Empowerment Programme, 264 Computer Clubs have been set up on a regional basis across Mauritius, as at date. This project has been extended to Rodrigues Island in collaboration with the National Empowerment Foundation (NEF).
The National Computer Board, operating under the aegis of the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology, submitted a project proposal to the NEF and it was approved in September 2013.
The purpose of this project is to provide free access to ICT tools and Internet to Rodriguans. The Learning Corners add to the development of Rodrigues by facilitating the democratisation of ICTs in order to contribute in the empowerment of the community through the use of ICTs and free access to broadband Internet. It helps to provide information and communication infrastructure and promote ICT for educational, personal and social development by providing free Internet access.
