Microsoft Tunisia supports digitalisation of Tunisian NGOs

A technology support programme, called Microsoft Azure, has been made available to Tunisian NGOs by Microsoft Tunisia to help them take a better grasp of technology. “The programme focuses on three main areas, namely, free access to technology and cash donations, training sessions to assist these NGOs in upgrading their human competences, and Networking sessions to reinforce synergies between them,” said Wednesday, Microsoft Tunisia Director-General Mohamed Bridaa.

Taking the floor at an information day organised at the Arab Institute of Business Leaders (IACE), on the theme “Digital transformation of NGOs in Tunisia,” he affirmed that “this offer, added to Microsoft Cloud Services made available to NGOs, is not exclusive and is open to any association that meets the criteria chosen, namely the real existence of the association, a compliance with the the legal framework governing the associative fabric and an acceptable level of maturity. However, priority will be given to associations whose action is part of national priorities, such as employment, innovation, sustainable development, etc.”

The official added that “with the on-line release of Azure for non-profit organisations, Microsoft now offers the industry’s most comprehensive grant programme with cloud services that empower these organisations to be digitally transformed to optimise their actions and increase their impact.”

Bridaa also said that “Microsoft Tunisia has managed to implement this programme through collaboration with several international donors including GIZ, MEPI (Middle East Partnership Initiative), Danish co-operation, etc.”

This campaign is part of Microsoft’s “Public Cloud for Public Good” initiative, which will donate $1 billion over three years, under the form of cloud computing resources for the benefit of 70,000 non-profit organisations and NGOs around the world.”
