About Ayitic

Background

After the "LACNIC in the Caribbean 4" event held in Haiti in 2012, we noted the need to work in this country, applying unique formats and proposals specifically targeted and designed to meet local demands. Ayitic - Internet for Development was launched in 2013 and is currently on track to becoming a sustainable initiative. The project is in line with the Action Plan for National Recovery and Development of Haiti (PDNA), which highlights the importance of rebuilding the pool of qualified human resources and developing modern, efficient information and communication techniques for public services (Internet development, digital networks, and the deployment of mobile communications to allow the government to communicate with the population) as one of the priorities for the country's development.

Results

In the medium-term, this project aims to achieve the following goals:

1. To develop a structured capacity building and strengthening program.

2. To create an institutional support model that will guarantee the project's continuity and sustainability.

3. To generate instruments that will allow measuring the project's medium- and long-term impacts.

Goal

Within this context, in line with LACNIC's vision to promote and defend the regional community's interests and help create conditions such that the Internet will become an effective instrument for social inclusion and economic development, we created the Ayitic - Internet for Development project and are now moving forward with its implementation. The project specifically seeks to build capacity, expand knowledge networks, and strengthen decision-making spaces geared primarily towards telephony, practical aspects of computer networks (wireless networks, network management), security, and the deployment of IPv6 – the new Internet protocol. It also aims to help strengthen ICT project management at local organization level, with a focus on the country's technological development.

Methodology

In its initial form, Ayitic provides free training workshops, the contents of which are selected based on structured surveys among potential participants seeking training opportunities. Thus, the project seeks to build on pre-existing expertise and know-how in order to enhance capacity building and deployment capabilities. Workshop participants are selected by a committee of experts made up by representatives of our partner organizations and the workshop instructors themselves.

Ayitic is currently working towards the second and third goals, through which we hope to consolidate the project.

Target Audience

Ayitic specifically targets those responsible for developing and operating telecommunication networks for government agencies, banks, and public and private companies; college and university professionals, teachers and advanced students; as well as non-governmental institutions.

The call for new partners is permanently open.

How to Participate

Financial Support:

Contribution of funds to help finance this activity. Ayitic has a basic budget that covers up to 100 attendees. This is be minimum budget to which LACNIC is committed. The project's goal, however, is to reach as many people as possible. A bigger budget would mean more seats available at the workshops, as well as more financial assistance opportunities for those living outside of Port-au-Prince.
