Linking people after the earthquake in Chile

Aug 13, 2010

The next stage

The second stage of the Mobile Telecenter will allow multiple social organizations take charge of the computers and the IT training offered to their clients and community. This CDI´s project is possible because we have been geeting contributions from Global Giving, UNESCO and TechSoup Global. Your contributions through Global Giving are allowing local non-profit organizations to: -Develop a strategy that involves NGOs and the community in the process of reconstruction in the affected areas by the earthquake, through digital inclusion. -Participate in a high-impact service, understanding the access to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as a process of digital and social inclusion. These objectives will be accomplished by CDI Chile and the selected organizations through the loan of 11 laptops, the training of 1 telecenter operator per location and the monitoring of the process made by each organization during the month of work in its community.Likewise, CDI Chile will contribute with the NGOs by donating them: -A stationary computer to each NGO at the end of its period with the Mobile Telecenter (after a month of operations) in order to improve its technological tools. - All the operational costs for the month, including the salary of the Telecenter operator. -A full scholarship for the Telecenter Operator training, through an e-learning platform provided by the Telecenter Academy in Chile, a program coordinated by ATACH where CDI Chile is the current president. The organizations selected are: Municipalidad de Tomé, CONAPRAN, Fundación Terranova, Fundación Coanil "Los Naranjos" Chillán and Corporación NAIM from Curicó Dichato will be the first town where the Telecenter Mobile will arrive in this second stage and it will operate from inside the local school. A launching event with the operators from the different organizations will be taking place during the end of August in the city of Concepción and by the 1st of September, the mobile telecenter will open it’s doors in the devastated town of Dichato. .
