As part of the celebration of the National ICT Month and coinciding with the launch of Get ONLINE, Philippines! campaign of the Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT), I-Café Pilipinas signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the government agency in a ceremony held at the CICT-NCC Building in Diliman, Quezon City last June 18, 2010.

The MoU contains the understanding between CICT and I-Café Pilipinas where the Internet  cafés open to the concept  of integrating the CeC ideals  and services as part of their business  social responsibility and contribution for  community development would be considered as candidate partners in the Philippine CeC Program under the  component for “Transformation of I-Cafes and High School Laboratories to CeCs”. The Philippine Community eCenter (CeC) Program is our government's response to the global goal of bridging the digital divide which has been identified as a priority program in the Philippine Strategic Roadmap for the ICT Sector 2010-2016.

CICT, in the same ceremony, also signed similar agreements with Philippine Postal Corporation and League of Municipalities of the Philippines in furtherance of the program's vision towards having “a CeC in Every Municipality”.
