The Najjad Zeenni Information Technology Center of Excellence plays an integral and vital role as part of the educational arena to continuously empower students and community professionals - by crafting IT skills development programs, fostering entrepreneurship, and promoting IT innovation and ICT business acceleration.
About the center
To help realize Target 18 of the UN Millenium Development Goals to "...make available the benefits of new technologies, especially information and communications technologies," ANERA, with the help of a private donor established the IT Center of Excellence in the heart of Birzeit University Campus.
Since its inception, the center has concentrated much of its work on closing the gap between those communities who can make effective use of information technology and those who cannot - i.e. bridging the digital divide through the use of ICT for development.
The center's mission is to facilitate and promote the effective use of information and communications technology for meaningful purposes in underserved Palestinian communities - schools and college students, micro-business owners, and to every male and female individual who can capitalize on the proven benefis of IT.
It is all about "changing lives and transforming communities" using ICT
