Building Skills and Boosting Employment through Information Technology in Guyana

In some areas of Guyana, especially where there is limited access to electricity, becoming computer literate is a distant dream for many.

The Basic Needs Trust Fund at the Caribbean Development Bank helped establish centres to provide equipment and training in information technology.

The Basic Needs Trust Fund contributes to poverty reduction in targeted communities by providing infrastructure and livelihood enhancement services for the most vulnerable in the Caribbean region.
