USPF takes zonal stakeholders engagement forum to Enugu

The Universal Service Provision Fund (USPF) has held its zonal stakeholders engagement forum on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) utilization and sustainability in coal city, Enugu, Enugu State, reports ITRealms.

The forum, ITRealms gathered is part of USPF interventions to improve the livelihoods of unserved, underserved communities and groups in the areas of wealth creation, education, agriculture and health recently held a workshop in Enugu for the South East Zone to engage stakeholders on ICT utilization and sustainability.

ITRealms also reports that USPF’s Community Resource Centres (CRC), and the School Knowledge Centres (SKC), officials say are two intervention projects with potential to engender, create, and ensure community sharing and adoption of ICTs in everyday activities.

The workshop, ITRealms further reports, was designed to enhance the transformation and optimal use of these Centers as innovation hubs that can serve to incubate technology and promote socio-economic development in Nigerian communities.

ITRealms recalls that the Fund, established under the Nigerian Communications Act 2003, is a department of the Nigerian Communications Commission that facilitates the achievement of national policy goals for universal access and universal service to information and communication technologies (ICTs) in rural, un-served and under-served areas in Nigeria.

Accordingly, the Fund is being managed to facilitate the widest possible access to affordable telecommunications tools, applications and services for greater social equity and inclusion for the people of Nigeria.
