Join the Program

The Better Connections Program is designed to help employers to meet their duties and responsibilities: by implementing ICT access within their work accommodation, they will be aiding transient workers’ integration into a new country and culture. They will also be helping our nation work towards the Qatar National Vision 2030, which seeks to build a knowledge-based society.

Companies can register and join our program by filling out the registration form and sending it back to digitalinclusion@ict.gov.qa.
