In the modern world, literacy is also vital in areas of sanitation, economy, and IT, he stressed. The project will be carried out in Tehran, Isfahan, Khorasan Razavi, Kordestan and Kerman provinces, and 500 people will be provided IT knowledge and skills in 100-hour workshops, as part of the total 600-hour LMO educational curriculum.
