Implementation partners play a crucial role in realising the NDLM vision of enabling digitally empowered communities. Mutually beneficial and lasting partnerships with implementation partners are crucial to integrate citizens into an increasingly digital economy. The Secretariat has established a regional network of partners for systematic implementation of digital literacy. This collaborative approach recognises that organisations with significant presence in the local area are best placed to impart training and improve digital literacy outcomes. Their efforts to teach practical and relevant skills to people with little or no prior computer experience is an integral part of the ecosystem which is coming together to put in place the National Digital Literacy Mission.
