Telecentres in your country


umber of telecentres in your country

Which are the most outstanding telecentre networks or actions in your country?

We don’t have a formal national network. But there is a group of institutions and people working together in actions that improve the telecenters like training or implementing new technologies since 1998. All the organizations involved in the TC academy in Peru are part of such group.

What are the most popular tasks and usages in the telecentre?

The most popular usages are those related to communications like chat, email or social networks. Telecenters are also used to obtain information (education,agricultural, telemedicine, etc.) and for entertainment.

Which social groups use the telecentre most frequently?

Mainly young people of communities around telecentres (rural and/or deprived areas). There are more men using telecenters, but this gap is getting closed (in rural places it was reported that the ratio es 1 woman for each 5 man).
