Helping Our Community

There is no doubt that ICT (Information, communication and technology)  have become an important resource, as two-way mechanisms, facilitating the perpetuation of and reflecting esteemed community values.

ICT’s have a huge capacity for incorporation into various forms of community action, including social change, community learning, community connection and community development amongst others.

Background on Lack of ICT IN Limpopo, Mogalakwena, Mokopane in particular.

Internet, Electronic Commerce, Globalisation and the Digital DivideThe Internet in conjunction with other enabling technologies is fuelling globalisation, and electronic commerce is drastically changing the way in which modern-day business is conducted (Stavrou et al, 2000).

E-commerce enables business transactions to extend across international borders and allows relationships to exist on a global level. The downside to this business evolution is that it threatens to widen the abyss that already exists between the active participants and those unable to participate due to lack of resources such as technology infrastructures, technology itself, skills and education. Deprived of the necessary infrastructure for conducting business via e-commerce and the Internet, business contenders are left at a severe disadvantage.

ICTs and Community Computing in Bridging the ‘Digital Divide’ in South Africa

 

Community centres incorporating ICTs can aid in bridging the digital divide by providing access to information and facilities to indigent community inhabitants. Such centres can bring communities together to create a knowledgeable society, strengthening the population, and improving its ability to fight poverty.

 

Many factors must be considered in providing Internet access and computing facilities within a South African context. These include funding,  resources and current infrastructures as well as the willingness of community members to accept and make use of the amenities.

 

COVID 19 and the need for ICT in rural areas

  • COVID-19 has made us all dependent on digital technology, but we must ensure that the world's poorest are not left behind.

  • Digital technologies can particularly improve the lives of all people including those in marginalised and less developed parts of our country and province of Limpopo. (Waterberg, Mokopane and Mapela in particular)

With COVID-19 having made us all more dependent on digital technology than ever before, now is the time to ensure that the revolution does not leave the world's poorest communities further behind. Increasing investment in technologies to help poor communities will yield far-reaching benefits long after the pandemic has passed.

The COVID-19 pandemic is reshaping societies around the world, in part by accelerating the digital revolution that was already underway at the beginning of the year. Since then, corporations have instituted mass teleworking. International gatherings now take place online, with heads of state and industry participating from home. Students learn remotely, and digital payments are further edging out cash.

But with technology influencing our lives more than ever, there is a risk that it will spread unevenly, entrenching existing inequalities and leaving the world’s poorest people further behind. That is not inevitable. Ituflex ICT Consulting aims to use digital technologies to contribute towards, helping  end global poverty and hunger faster, including in rural parts Mokopane, Mogalakwena , Limpopo and South Africa , where the majority of people earn their living from agriculture.

SUCCESS STORY

Success Strategy: Viet Nam is one of the Pacific Asian countries with a significant internal digital divide, as well as a wider development gap, compared to more economically advanced countries. The complex ethnic mosaic of Viet Nam, as well as large differences in income, has the potential for social fragmentation, with technological spin-offs. Disparities between rich and poor, between the rural and urban populations, as well as ethnic communities, are seen in income, education, access to resources, health status, job opportunities and quality of life.

It is against this background that eLangViet partners have taken on the challenge of addressing social development through the creation of an online network offering easy-to-understand Vietnamese-language know-how in health, education, agricultural production, crafts and trade. Information and knowledge can be accessed by the poorest sections of Vietnamese society through computers based in specially developed community telecentres. Local grassroot communities are given IT training to awaken their curiosity and enhance their creativity and skills. Project participants are urged to take full advantage of the IT facilities on offer, while making them aware of the value of the skills learned, to enable them to take their own choices and decisions about their future personal and professional development. This approach ensures a sustainable and fruitful outcome to the project activities.

eLangViet operates initially in eight pilot villages with population of about 70,000 people, spread across six provinces. This pilot stage will last for two years before the network is rolled out across the provinces and nationwide, building on the lessons learned. A further goal of the future deployment of the project on a national level is to strengthen Viet Nam's domestic market, contribute to the improvement of the general welfare and lead action for poverty reduction
