Disabled people, prisoners, people with less opportunities and those in remote areas are learning to connect to modern society, using computers and the Internet just as others do.Thanks to the IT initiative of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, the digital divide in Thailand is being bridged.Launched in 1996, the IT initiative was funded by the Government Lottery Office, aiming to promote the use of IT to enhance the quality of life and education and to create opportunities for less privileged people.
