Brief Description World Links has had a strong history in the Dominican Republic. With funding from TaiwanICDF and Microsoft, nine school-based telecenters were openned in 2005. This School Based Telecenter Program was a finalist for the Development Gateway Award in 2006. TaiwanICDF also funded a teacher professional developmnet program in the country. The Ministry of Education has taken the telecenter model as an example to replicate at other centers. Nine regional coordinators have been contracted to continue the telecenter project. These regional coordinators will make the sure that the telecenter is a model that is practical in order to make the integration of new centers into communities successful. The SEE wants to expand the project to every school that is interested and willing to work hard to make the project successful.
