A telecentre is a public place where people can develop digital skills by being given access to computers, the Internet, and other technologies that help them gather information and communicate with others. A telecentre can go by other names—e.g. infocenters, community technology centers, village knowledge centers, etc.—but is always defined by its objective of contributing to social development and community building.
From the villages of Chile, to the streets of the Philippines, telecentres serve as welcoming havens for people of all classes and ethnicities to come together, and learn and experience the wonders and benefits of ICT. Likewise, these telecentres shall serve as “classrooms” for our Campaign.
