    Community Development Portals


    Last Updated: 18 Jun 2017
    The community development portals, Kenanaonline, contribute to the enhancement of the knowledge society in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region by leading and moderating the generation and management of credible and specialized knowledge portals. This is in addition to developing social mindset for using ICT in utilizing knowledge for sustainable community development. The portals support rural-urban integration into one knowledge society, and empower communities through the provision of easy access to information.

    The Kenananonline program was initiated based on three key concepts:

    1- The significance of knowledge for community development
    2- The value of establishing a sustainable mechanism for producing, managing and updating specialized, authenticated, efficient and professionally-presented Arabic content in various development fields
    3- The power of partnerships and networking for establishing knowledge-based organizations and building the knowledge society Based on these key concepts, the kenanaonline tried to produce a workable model that could counterchallenge cultural stereotypes and social misconceptions that limit the sharing and utilization of knowledge in the MENA region.

    Strategy

    Kenanaonline work scope depends mainly on two major strategies:

    1- Networking and Partnership
    Building a network of community partners from NGOs, experts, academia, universities, entrepreneurs and private sectors in every targeted field to be engaged in enriching the Arabic content with specialized knowledge in different fields. Each partner participates in establishing a promising information society and implicitly encourages activities related to networking, business opportunities and e-marketing.

    2- Community Mobilization
    Developing a series of public activities including workshops, seminars and training sessions that are mainly directed towards raising awareness using Kenanaonline features and services. These activities target mobilizing the Arabic-speaking people to actively participate in enlarging Kenanaonline knowledge networks, and enhancing the specialized free e-content. please visit Kenanaonline
