The initiative targets people who have never touched a computer before, and its goal is to develop their IT skills by using a standardized approach. In partnership with reliable and reputable local organizations, the Foundation has defined the scope of the initiative as facilitating free, accessible, and effective:
- Equipment for the computer training centers (DU Labs)
- Internet connection for the most remote areas of the world
- Training materials for all provided courses
- Local support system
- Communities’ empowerment, through the “train the trainer” approach, where trainers are trained to further cascade the Program.
The Foundation collects the initiatives’ proposals and evaluates them to ensure their alignment with its own mission and strategy. The analysis of potential partners and the corresponding proposed projects results in a well-organized, customized initiative that meets the desired social impact and the Foundation’s high operational standards.
