Key Considerations for Future Development

Knowledge Stations

Jordan Telecenters Initiative

  • The JITCC initiative has evolved into a pioneering reference in bridging digital divides. It is becoming an example to follow by many countries in the region.
  • Planning to make the centers self-sustainable. Centers not capable of self-sustainability will be supported
  • Pursuing an aggressive marketing promotion strategy to engage Communities.
  • In the less populated areas satellite centers will be established to offer the services needed
  • The strategy entails building the capacity of local community host organizations such as youth clubs, municipal entities and NGO’s to allow them to assume a leading role in the future development of their communities.
