The primary objective behind this activity is to ask the ADOC members around the world to share their experiences of what they have seen, experienced and learnt about the progress of information and communication technologies (ICTs). So we can raise awareness of the importance of bridging the digital divide. In addition, this activity will also show what the ADOCs have served as important roles to facilitate access to ICT and provide training and education to those vulnerable segments of the population.

The secondary objective of this activity, by filming the activities and training organized by ADOCs, provides a chance for all the partners in the ADOC Project to promote the importance of their centers in the communities in order to bring more trainees to their ADOCs.
