11 Jun New network of 300 telecentres launched in Georgia
On May 11, 2012, the Ministry of Justice of Georgia launched the “Computer Knowledge Society Initiative” (in Georgian, Google translate works nicely) to promote digital literacy and e-skills, with a focus on economic development.
The first stage of the project will establish computer centers in 300 villages, to later extend to 600 villages. Staff will be selected though an open competition and the initiative is intended to be financially sustainable. Telecentre-Europe has already established a first connection with the Ministry of Justice through our Lithuanion member organization, as during the first week of June guests from Georgia visited Langas i Ateiti in Vilnius.
