What Mission 2011 is for?

Mission 2011 is a multi-stakeholder initiative for building a sustainable information and knowledge system for the poor and marginalised by the 40th anniversary of Bangladesh's independence. The goal of Mission 2011 is to promote initiatives taken by the government, private sector, NGOs, research institutions, educational institutions, media, international and national development partners and other stakeholders for building various models of telecentres in Bangladesh so that by 2011 all citizens of the country would have access to information and knowledge centres (popularly known as telecentre) for getting communication, information and other services for improving their livelihoods and quality of life. The telecentres will have different ownership patterns, technology, target beneficiaries, service packages, and business/sustainability models.

Who is this for?
Any entrepreneur or institution can come forward to establish an information and knowledge centre. The government, private sector, NGOs, research institutions, educational institutions already have established information and knowledge centres with variety of ownership, technology, service package and business model. Some of the institutions established them directly and other in partnership with grassroots elvel institutions and individual entrepreneurs. Local initiative is the centre point of Mission 2011. For fostering telecentre movement in Bangladesh and facilitating various initiatives Bangladesh Telecentre Network (BTN) has been established with a number of like-minded organisations. It is an inclusive network, where any individual or an institution committed to bring ICT to the doors of the common people across the country can be a member or partner to collectively promote the idea of building sustainable information and knowledge system for the poor. The network is based on the idea of maximizing the advantages of information and communication technologies (ICTs) through sharing of experiences and knowledge within the components of the organisation. It envisages addressing poverty alleviation through accessing information and knowledge by the poor as an overarching dimension of the Network's mission.

What is the Vision of the BTN?
An inclusive knowledge society in Bangladesh, where the poor and the marginalized people get access to information and knowledge for improving their livelihood through the use of modern information and communication technologies.

Who are the Members?
The network is truly a platform of multi-stakeholder partnership, where NGOs, private sector, research institutions, academia, international and national development partners, individuals and government institutions can together advance the cause of empowering the poor and the marginalised for alleviating poverty by harnessing the power of ICTs along with other core resources. Any individual or organization who believes in the importance of telecentre as a new institution for rural Bangladesh for poverty alleviation and empowerment and desire to play an active role in making Mission 2011 a success can be a member of the BTN.
