The Better Connections Program aims to encourage programs that promote collaborative and sustainable frameworks to empower disadvantaged groups and facilitate their access to basic technologies, and the skills they need to utilize these technologies. We are continuously working to expand our partners’ network.
The program is unique due to its sustainable framework made possible by a group of committed partners, each responsible for delivering a major component. The Ministry works with the strategic partners who make the program possible:
- Reach Out To Asia (ROTA)
- Sheikh Thani Ibn Abdullah for Humanitarian Services (Raf)
- Social and Economic Survey Research Institute (SESRI)
- Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy
- Qatar Foundation
- National Human Rights Committee (NHRC)
Companies and Contractors
Companies are at the heart of the project as they provide a point to access the target group. Enhancing an employee’s digital literacy can greatly improve the relationship between an employer and their transient workforce, boosting productivity and loyalty towards their employers. It also empowers your staff to become self-sufficient and develop their capacity to learn. It improves your employees’ learning skills, educates employees about issues such as safety at work to reduce the number of accidents that happen and demonstrates an employer’s commitment to investing in the employees’ future.
Each participating company houses, administers and manages the operation of the ICT space(s) within the migrant workers accommodation complexes that belong to that respective company as part of their responsibility towards the employed workers.
