3.7.1.4 Participation with Resources and Capacities

In the process of adoption, and to contribute to the sustainability of the tele-centers, it is recommended that, as much as possible, local resources and capacities be incorporated into the project. Provided it is carried out in a context of real participation and co-responsibility, community input is very important to reinforce the process of project adoption, which along with local capacity-building reduces dependence on outside support.

To achieve this, it is necessary to identify human resources, materials and institutional backing in the planning processes. These resources can be used in the installation and operation of the center and, of course, are usually defined by the community itself.
