Digital Inclusion

ICT sector focuses on adapting ICTs to find solutions to issues of concern to the community. The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology seeks to embrace digital citizenship in a technological society using ICTs. It aims to empower the elderly and people with disabilities, serve marginalized and remote communities, develop people’s ability to communicate and connect with their environment and promoting online safety.
ICT for Community Integration

Community Integration Initiative was launched by Egypt Information and Communication Technology Trust Fund (ICT-TF)— jointly established by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in January 2002. 

The Initiative aims at empowering rural and marginalized communities through development projects and raising awareness of the benefits of ICTs in cooperation with Civil Society Organizations (CSOs). 

ICT-TF sponsors several projects, aiming to investigate the different means by which ICTs can enrich the livelihood of Egyptian citizens and foster socio-economic development.

The Initiative also endeavors to promote development in rural and marginalized areas through application of technology solutions to establish an integrated sustainable development model.

Moreover, it strives to empower women through illiteracy eradication programs, as well as improving services in education, healthcare and in support of small businesses through the use of ICT tools.
