2.1 International initiatives
The goal of providing ICT access to schools is a global one. It has
attracted support and contributions -- from a financial and intellectual
standpoint -- from multiple international organizations, including the ITU,
the United States and others. Some of their efforts have been embraced
through (1) the Millenium Development Goals (MGDs), (2) the World Summit on
the Information Society (WSIS), and (3) the World Education Forum.
