Mission 2007 Pusa
How can information communication technology be taken to 6,00,000 Indian villages, 3,00,000 to 4,00,000 of which don't have working telephones and 1,00,000 no telecom connection? A workshop, 'Mission 2007: every village a knowledge centre', in Pusa discussed this on July 9-10, 2004. 'Mission 2007' plans to set up knowledge centres in all villages to generate knowledge-based livelihoods for farmers and disadvantaged people. Panchayats, self-help groups or community-based organisations will run these knowledge centers, said speakers at the workshop, which was organised by the M S Swaminathan Research Foundation and the international ngo OneWorld South Asia.
