Information and Communications Technology (ICT) plays an increasingly important role in the provision of education in refugee settings and areas affected by conflict and crises. WIU has embraced innovative, cost-effective and scalable education technology to deliver and enhance access to ICT skills by refugees and host communities through Community Technology Access Centres (CTAs).
The youths are trained in ICT essential packages that consist of Introduction to Computing, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint and Introduction to the Internet to attain digital literacy. The CTAs also offer full-time internet connectivity for research in the café for both refugees and the host community. The digital literacy and other life skills trainings provided enable youth to access employment and fit in the world of work.
