World Telecommunication and Information Society Day

by Reedz on May 19, 2008

This year, we celebrate WTISD under the theme “Connecting Persons With Disabilities: ICT Opportunities For All” and ITU member countries are urged to focus on this theme and address the special requirements of those with special needs. This should be taken into account in all actions and projects targeting the use and access of ICT, not only as a way to widen ICT opportunities for the ‘physically and mentally challenged’ but also as a way to accelerate bridging the digital divide and contribute to the development of the telecommunication sector as a whole.

This celebration was jointly supported by the Special Education Unit of Ministry of Education, Land Transport Department of Ministry of Communication, Telekom Brunei Berhad (TelBru), DST Group, B-Mobile Sdn Bhd, CfBT Learning Centre, Infocom Federation of Brunei (IFB), Anakbrunei.org and Ranoadidas.com.

He doesn’t need a comb, give him an electric curler … the long straight locks doen’t really suit him, let it be free to curl … 😀
