The National Commission for Human Development (NCHD) of Pakistan in collaboration with the UNESCO launched an information and communication technology-based literacy kit.
The literacy kit is aimed at inducting information and communication technology for promoting literacy to equip individuals with skill and knowledge required to cope with global changes. NCHD Chairman Nasim Ashraf said the NCHD was trying to improve the delivery of services at grassroots level. This process was initiated to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and has entered in its 5th year of successful operations. NCHD has expanded its operations from two districts in 2002 to above 122 presently and partners with private and public sector, board members and the volunteers. The ICT-based literacy kit will provide opportunities to the learners to improve their literacy skills by using those tools. It will also provide an interactive learning environment to the adult literacy learners for better and sustained learning because the kit can be used for basic education and skill training activities.
