The ICT Lab which was financially supported by Vodafone Malta Foundation aims to give the residents every possibility to take up the opportunities offered by the use of IT to enhance their education, the knowledge of the world around them, inclusion, friendships and be in touch with opportunities for work.
This lab is equipped with assistive technology including touch screens, keyboards and specially designed mice, and software designed to facilitate the use by persons with different intellectual and physical disabilities.
The lab, was set up under the professional advice of Marica Gatt from the Education Division and Stanley Debono from the Foundation for Information Technology Accessibility (FITA).
In line with this project, Id-Dar tal-Providenza extended this project to the residents individual rooms. The Ministry for Infrastructure, Transport and Communication has helped the home to extend this project so that residents may have IT axcess in their rooms.
