“Bridging the digital divide is a priority area of work for UNDP around the world. In Malaysia, this initiative with the Ministry of Education will pioneer an innovative approach to access by opening the schools up to the community in after-school hours, with professional guidance so that the same computer resources can serve both students and their families,”
