The Initiative of establishing Information Technology and Community Service Centers
(renamed later Knowledge Stations) was launched in 2001. This initiative aims at ensuring
that every Jordanian has access to Information and Communications Technology;
significantly, the initiative is targeted towards those communities who, under ordinary
circumstances, would not be able to experience ICT easily. These marginalized populations
are those such as women, the underprivileged and underserved, children, laborers, farmers,
and the illiterate. The majority of these communities reside in the rural and remote areas of
Jordan, where access to ICT is difficult to obtain. In addition, the initiative is intended to
implement IT in local communities in remote areas in preparation for the E-government
process. The National Information Technology Center (NITC) was mandated with the
execution of the project after it conducted a study on the best practice in selecting the sites
for the Knowledge Stations in the different governorates and local communities.
