World Telecommunications Information Society Day (WTISD)

The WTISD was held on the 17th May 2019 in Sefhare.

Commemorated worldwide, this day promotes the United Nations (UN) purpose to “help raise awareness of the possibilities that the use of the Internet and other information and communication technologies (ICT) can bring to societies and economies, as well as bridging the digital divide”. Locally, the annual event is organised by the Ministry of Transport and Communications. The 2019 theme was ‘Bridging the standardisation gap’.

BTC Foundation donated a computer laboratory to Sefhare Community Library to the value of P 124,353. This laboratory consisted of ten (10) computers, a printer, desktop tables and chairs, and internet connectivity. The donation was in line with the Foundation’s sustainability strategy as the broader community of Sefhare stood to benefit. BTC also participated in the host of other events that took place during the week-long commemorations. The BTC Chairperson, BTC Foundation Chairperson and BTC Managing Director, as well as other BTC Executives and employees, were in attendance.
