MOTC Announces Training 27000 People Among DigitalThe Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC) has stated that the Better Connections Program has provided training for 27000 people among digital pioneers, through an extensive program for training volunteers, who have performed their role in training their colleagues on how to use computers and have access to services. This also includes facilitating communication with families and friends in their home countries.
MOTC also pointed out the program is one of its initiatives, in collaboration with the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs. Digital pioneers, via the training they have received from the volunteers of the Better Connections Program, have managed to train thousands of laborers on how to have access to Information and Communications Technology (ICT) devices, gain the basic trainings necessary for their integration into the digital world, and how to keep in touch with their families and relatives.
MOTC added that the Better Connections Program via the contributions made by the government and private sectors has achieved its goals seeking to integrate laborers into the digital world, by setting up ICT facilities in their accommodations, and ensure their accessing to and using this technology. Therefore, this provides expatriate laborers with an opportunity to identify benefits, which can be provided by the technology for them via the Internet.
