US Embassy Provides "Internet for All"

The US Embassy in Tripoli has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Microsoft, H2O, and the US-Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) to launch the “Internet for all-Libya” project.

This project will install hotspots in public places and schools around Libya and provide training so more Libyans can benefit from access to the Internet.

This event coincided with Global Partnerships Week, with the aim of helping to address the world’s problems in areas such as health, education, and economic development.

One Response to US Embassy Provides "Internet for All"

    This is a great piece of news for Libyans who have until recently been unable to access knowledge that is crucial for development and above all communication.

    It is the lack of access to good information that leads to difficulties in many countries or regions. Here in the UK there is much emphasis on personal skills in IT for the very purposes of social well-being - education and health - and a wider variety of knowledge helps to dispel xenophobia and increases social tolerance.
