Thanks to the RIA now I feel I'm included

Get to know the RIA experience direclty from our users. 

A Computer For Mom

My daughter used to ask me how to surf the Internet, how to delete. And I didn't know! "Like a person who can't read and write,that's how it is like to not know how to use a computer. It was very difficult because I really felt I was illiterate

When you don't have the right tools, it feels like you have limitations. It feels like your being left out.But now i feel I'm included, that I'm a part of something. 

At the RIA there's English lessons for kids too. Children learn, and click around without fear And I was afraid I could break the computer down or delete everything from it.
