World's first tablet based disaster preparedness training for the mass.
'Training In A Tab' is the official name of world's first tablet based disaster preparedness training programme for the mass. Since 2012, the programme is being administered in various areas of Bangladesh. The training is primarily targeted and delivered to the rural people who are often deprived of formal education and never really manages to get institutional training of any sort. From 2012 to 2017, the project has gone to 20 locations of Bangladesh and has received positive acclaims among the 1200+ participants with an overarching estimated reach of 100000+ lives. This project has shown indeed the tablet based training had assisted them to acquire skills and knowledge that would otherwise be left unachieved. The project is ongoing and is expanding to further geographic locations.
Training In A Tab was a finalist in WSIS Prize 2017. The World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Forum 2017 represented the world's largest annual gathering of the ‘ICT for development’ community. The annual WSIS Forum is a global multi-stakeholder platform facilitating the implementation of the WSIS Action Lines for advancing sustainable development.
