The internet and its applications provide a wide range of benefits to everyone. But it also requires specific basic skills and knowledge to use different internet devices effectively in order to improve one’s personal and professional development. More precisely, it means that without these skills and knowledge individuals are not in a position to do research (e.g. looking for a job), send out emails, get connected with people, or receive online information about how to set up your own business.
We, Knowledge for Development Without Borders (K4DWB), believe that in the 21st century, human sustainable development inevitably requires open access to information, communication and technology (ICT) consistent to the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
