Victor and his grandchild learning computing

Thanks to the support we have received on GlobalGiving´s platform our project Access to Technology and Education in Mexico has more and more users. In this project report we would like to introduce you to Victor Manuel Rosado, a dedicated and enthusiastic 63 year old RIA user who convinced his grandchild Victor Alejandro Arvisu to enroll and learn computing at the RIA.

In June this year, Victor Rosado went to the RIA (Learning and Innovation Network) Center located in Huixquilucan a municipality in the State of Mexico, and decided to enroll in Acércate a Open Office, a course intended for people that want to get closer to write texts, make presentations and know who to use a spreadsheet.

Let´s read what this proud grandfather has to say about his experience

“When I go to other organizations I feel they don´t respect me, at a certain moment I started to feel old and I am not old. The RIA is a nonprofit project created with the aim of helping. I brought my grandchild so that he can have a structured knowledge about the computer. I encourage him by reminding him that when I´m stuck I want him to help me out, that makes him more interested. Last but not least, being up to date is part of life; people start to get old when they are out of touch with new technology

As you can see here a very proud grandfather!
