In line with its fields of competence (Education, Science, Culture and Communication), ISESCO has redoubled efforts to contribute to bridging the digital divide between its  Member States and the developed countries.

During the Second Ministerial forum on Science, Technology and Innovation in Africa, held in Rabat, Morocco, 14-17 October, 2014, ISESCO agreed to take part in WSA regional initiative focusing on creativity, entrepreneurship and mobile solutions with a strong and social impact in Africa, which was a successful event.

ICTs, when used wisely, offer great opportunities for the Muslim World with 50% of its population is under the age of 25 and most of them are digital natives. For these reasons ISESCO is proud to contribute to WSA-mobile Global Congress 2015, to encourage and reward the 40 winning teams and Champions of WSA mobile 2014-2015.
