Personal and organizational progress

It is a great pleasure for us to keep our donors, partners and friends posted on our latest achievements. Thanks to the donations of all our supporters through the online fundraising platform –Globalgiving- we have been able to impact another group of people with disabilities to learn the use and adoption of ICT.

The starring group is a bit different this time. We trained 20 senior nuns in the basic use of ICT. It turns out that they asked for our help because their Community –Franciscan Community- needed to learn how to use a special platform developed to promote communication among them and to provide training.

The nuns we trained had difficulties to see and to move. They take care of other seniors in a house for the elderly called Casa Madre Bernarda. They learned how to use the e-mail. How to browse on the internet and how to read the online magazines that their community sends.

We are very glad to contribute with the improvement of these women’s lives. With this training they were not only advancing as persons but also as a non-for-profit organization. We strongly believe that ICT is a great way to generate inclusion within society. Please share this report with your family and friends so they get to know the amazing things that can be achieved with the support of people like you.

Inclusion through ICT is possible!

Thanks to the donations you have made it is possible for 104 people with disabilities to say that they have learned new skills by using ICT and that their possibilities are a lot more now that they received training. We have trained almost 25 trainers, some of whom have impairments as well so they can communicate better with the students and better understand their needs. Nearly 10 institutions and libraries have received our materials and guidance in the training and support of people with disabilities.

Besides from offering training in the use and adoption of ICT for people with different disabilities, we have also gone further by designing two multimedias. The purpose of these multimedias is that they are used at libraries or telecenters by anybody who wants to learn how to use the computer. Both of the multimedias are spoken in sign language and include practicle exercises for users. The first multimedia can be run by clicking here.The second multimedia is under construction.

In the pictures attached to this report you can see some of the work we do with the people hearing impaired.

Once again thank you!
