Dear Miguel, Hi.
If you remeber I talked to you about the issue of the easy-learning system which uses user name and password to access training courses made available through the Internet. You may also remeber that I told you about the slow rate of selling them to the community in Sudan. I told you some reasons for that like the language barrier.
I am expecting your contribution on the same issue but didn't see it yet. Is it expected soon?.
Best regards.

Dear All,
I'm a new member and would love to use my writing and research background to contribute to the telecenter magazine. It'd be great if one of you can let me know how exactly the operations work here and how I could be of help.

Vision and objective
Ofok is dedicated to bring IT literacy to as many people as possible. We are therefore offering basic IT courses from well-known companies such as Cisco Systems and Sun Microsystems completely free. That’s right! Students will be taught by an instructor for free, and gain access to the online curriculum for free. Additionally, there will be a discount for exams… And anyone can partake in this endeavor!

How it works
Universities and high schools who wish to partake in this initiative can do so in alliance with the Digital Academy. An Ofok ambassador will head a group of Ofok volunteers – known as a chapter – in each university or high-school. In the high school, the chapter will select a group of students from each year group who will then teach the basics of IT to all the students in their year.

Within the university campus, the chapter will ideally consist of students from the
Faculty of Engineering who have a passion for IT. Within the university, the chapter will select a faculty team leader from each faculty. The faculty team leader will then recruit local faculty members who will act as mentors teaching the basics of IT to all members of his or her faculty.

Ofok will first begin its contribution to ICT for All by offering IT Essentials: PC
Hardware and Software through the Cisco Networking Academy Program and Free Open
Source Softwaren Essentials through the Sun Academic Initiative. All
certificates will be internationally recognized and issued directly from Cisco and Sun.
However it doesn’t stop here – there’s a reward! The chapter to have trained the largest number of people will be awarded free advanced ICT and business courses in Digital Academy. This will be the reward for those who strived hardest in our noble goal to reduce IT literacy in Egypt!

Knowing the basics of IT is the first and an essential step for any kind of development. Think about it… Information sharing on a wide variety of issues such as famine, disease, health treatments, educational and literacy programs has completely revolutionized our lives. The internet has made life better for everyone – and with technology becoming more advanced and more widespread, the potential for online learning, improved communications and setting up e-businesses will continue to grow. Of course, for all this to happen, it has to start somewhere. Learning computer fundamentals is only just the start, and we at Ofok feel very proud to participate in this endeavor!

Ofok NGO for Human Development

15 Ofok ambassadors have been selected for this project to promote ICT among young people with the mission to inspire others of their own age to gain ICT training. It encourages the development of young people through giving them the opportunity to fulfill their potential by developing their interpersonal and IT skills.

Road map into the future
As Ofok, our intention is to increase the level of education in Egypt. We plan to provide advanced technology courses by working in close alliance with students and young people by forming community groups. The final aim being… To empower the youth!
