Rural Knowledge Telecentres of Sri Lanka

Description: 
The Nanasala Project is implemented under the e-Sri Lanka Initiative. ('Nenasala' in Sinhalese means 'global knowledge centres'). The e-Sri Lanka Initiative initiated by the Government of Sri Lanka aims to provide access to diverse and unrestricted sources of information and means of communication to all the citizens of Sri Lanka. Under this initiative, the ICTA (Information and Communication Technology Agency) plans to open 1,000 Nanasalas all over the island to help communities improve their knowledge and access global information. The project addresses ICT infrastructure deficiencies in rural areas of Sri Lanka. A key objective of this programme is to establish multi-service community information centres or Nanasalas which will provide access to Internet, telephones and other information services along with training to the public in rural communities.
