Breaking Barriers: NTRC’s Commitment to Inclusivity for the Elderly and Disabled


Kingstown – St. Vincent- In our mission to bridge the digital divide, the National Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (NTRC) utilizing the Universal Service Fund (USF) remains steadfast in its dedication to ensuring equitable access to communication services and technology for all members of society. Recognizing the unique challenges faced by the elderly and disabled in accessing digital resources, the NTRC has embarked on a groundbreaking initiative to address these disparities.

The elderly and disabled often require specialized communication equipment or assistive technologies to navigate the digital landscape effectively. Through targeted efforts, the NTRC aims to provide tailored support by procuring and donating equipment that caters to the specific needs of these demographics. By doing so, we aim to empower individuals to fully participate in the digital world, thereby promoting inclusivity and enhancing their overall quality of life.

This Project’s primary objective is to procure and distribute equipment that caters to the unique requirements of the elderly and disabled, ensuring they have access to the tools they need to thrive in today’s digital age.

The NTRC is also committed to fostering inclusivity in institutions that serve the elderly and disabled. By enhancing accessibility through technology and infrastructure improvements, we strive to create environments where all individuals can engage with digital services confidently and independently.
