Mada is the world’s
Center of Excellence
in digital access in Arabic.

Mada Center was founded in 2010 as an initiative that aims at promoting digital inclusion and building a technology-based community that meets the needs of persons with functional limitations (PFLs) and persons with disabilities (PWDs) in Qatar.

Through strategic partnerships, the center works to enable the education, culture and community sectors through ICT to achieve an inclusive community and educational system.

The Center achieves its goals by building partners’ capabilities and supporting the development and accreditation of digital platforms in accordance with international standards of digital access. Mada raises awareness, provides consulting services and increases the number of assistive technology solutions in Arabic through the Mada Innovation Program to enable equal opportunities for PWDs in the digital community.

At the national level, Mada Center has achieved a digital accessibility rate of 90% amongst government websites, while Qatar ranks first worldwide on the Digital Accessibility Rights Evaluation Index (DARE).
