Qatar Petroleum and Reach Out to Asia Partner for ICT Indonesia Programme

Qatar Petroleum (QP) and Reach Out to Asia (ROTA) have partnered on the new Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Indonesia Programme, with the goal of improving access to technology, as well as streamlining teacher training and administrative processes in Indonesian education. “We are proud to say that although in its early stage, ROTA’s ICT Indonesia Programme has received an overwhelming response from participating schools, teachers, and students,” said Essa al-Mannai, ROTA’s executive director. The program, being implemented in 12 schools in and around Jakarta, has already passed the first assessment phase and is now being rolled out in full. There are plans to extend the program further outside of Jakarta in the future.

 



Indonesian schools are sorely lacking in access to technology, and even when that technology is available, access to education itself is often limited, especially for young children. The Indonesian government reported last year that only 37.8 per cent of the country’s children under six had access to early childhood education programs. The ICT is designed to combat these issues, and provide more effective education for Indonesia’s students.
