We are so happy to share with you that after four years of operation, the RIA has enrolled more than 350,000 users, of which more than 106,000 have graduated from its courses. With a basic computing course of 72 hours, the RIA creates digital citizens that adopt technology and participate in a globalized community. In a social return on investment study conducted in 2011 by students from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, the Fundación Proacceso was able to conclude that a woman who has graduated from the RIA´s basic computing courses has four times more opportunities to find a job. The study also concluded that for every $1 invested in the RIA, $1.74 is generated in economic growth. 

 

Thanks for believing in us! and make possible our vision of bridging the digital divide in Mexico.
