Third Convention of Mission 2007, July 28-29, 2006

The third convention of Mission 2007, held on July 28-29th, 2006, at Chennai, Tamilnadu, India, proved to be another milestone in its short, but eventful history. During this convention, it took another big leap from convergence of parallel telecenter initiatives towards exploring its convergence with Indian government’s national missions like National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA), Bharat Nirman and several other national initiatives. With a… Continue

Use of Participatory Videos for Advocacy

Once again, I am walking down the memory lane of Bangladesh. At a workshop held at YPSA Resource Center, Sitakund (Feb. 22-24, 2006), I met a number of participants representing diffrent Community Based Organisations (CBOs). Since it was a residential workshop, I had the opportunity to interact with almost all of them, and learn about thier unique initiatives. My knowledge of Bangla was a shot in the arm, as most of them could speak and understand only Bangla; and above all, it provided an… Continue

Mission 2007: Evolution of a Pilot Study into a National Telecenter Movement

The Pilot

In the South Asian region, India took the lead in the telecenter movement by piloting the MSSRF-IDRC Project of ‘Village Information Centers (VICs) in three villages near Pondicherry. It was the brainchild of Prof. MS Swaminathan. The experience gained from its implementation inspired the project team to use ‘social inclusion’, ‘reaching the unreached’ and ‘voicing the voiceless’ as the guiding principles for replicating this model in other regions. During the pilot, the… Continue

e-Learning in the South Asian Region

The e-learning sector is growing gradually, but steadily in the South Asian region. A number of organisations, even telecenters, are developing very interesting and innovative multi-media modules that consist of either a combination of animation, audio, video, hypertext, graphics or only animation, only audio-video mediums. It is basically a multi-sectoral activity with the involvement of a number of professionals, such as subject experts, teachers, psychiatrists, IT and multi-media… Continue

The Telecenter Movement in Nepal: Some Observations

The telecenter movement is at a very nascent stage in Nepal. It is a relatively new concept that is gradually gaining momentum. Nepal followed the Mission 2007 example in totality, right down to adopting the 5Cs to prepare the roadmap for its implementation at the national level. Just like Mission 2007, Nepal’s ‘Swabhiman’ is also a CSO initiated telecenter movement. With the Nepali government showing a keen interest in ICT enabled development; its proactive support is steering it forward in… Continue

30th May, 2006, Cisco Centre, San Jose: Daniel Ben Horin, President and CEO of Compumentor didn't want to mention that this was a conference on web 2.0 as he was jokingly refering that it may infringe the rights of a buzz word. This conference tried to bring an interesting mix of web 2.0 technologists, innovators at the one hand and development and NGOs sector people on the other hand. What was the purpose? As the organizes repeatedly pointed out, to create a 'mash up' of these clouds (and to… Continue

Improving livelihoods with ICTs

This policy brief, published by the International Institute for Economic Development (IIED) outlines how and why information and communication technology (ICT) projects do, or do not, work for development.

Rapid growth of ICTs in rural Africa and emerging economies such as Brazil and China is closing the gap in ICTs between North and South. Governments pushing ICT infrastructure projects such as mobile mast networks have successfully reduced access costs for many in the developing… Continue
