This microproject will help equip our classroom in Panama with 20 computers, 1 projector and 6 UPS batteries, which will be used by 125 women in social vulnerability annually to strengthen their computational knowledge and learn digital tools that will allow them to obtain employment.
In Panama, women and girls in social vulnerability generally do not have access to a formal digital education that prepares them effectively for labor market challenges. Most of our beneficiaries have no experience using digital tools, and 90% do not use e-mail, social networks and computer tools correctly, which makes it difficult for them to access to better jobs.
Our computer classes with a focus on leadership and employability provide women with self-confidence and technological appropriation to develop job and entrepreneurial skills that allow them to improve their socioeconomic situation.
Each year, we will train 125 women in social vulnerability to develop soft and technical skills for life. This computer classroom will be used by current students during computer training and also by graduates that require a computer to look for information regarding job openings. By being more prepared with computer skills, they will grow professionally and have access to opportunities that were previously impossible.
