With the objective of e-powering people, the NCB undertakes various activities to bridge the digital divide and create an information-based society in Mauritius.
The Government is fully committed to develop the ICT sector as the fifth pillar of our economy and in this context it is important to have a high level of awareness and understanding of IT among the public. Successful implementation of electronic services at the level of the government (e.g. e-government) or in the private sector (e.g. electronic banking) depends on a widespread IT culture.

In order to provide access to IT facilities to develop this culture in a cost effective manner in the short term the NCB Cyber Caravan provides a solution to bring IT facilities to the community, school and workplace
