Meet Don Fernando! a 70 year old user that loves learning about new technologies

Dear Donor,

We are writing to express our thanks for your recent donation to the Fundacion Proacceso's projects. Gifts from donors like you provide the support we need to continue our mission of bridging the digital divide in Mexico by providing low-income communities with quality educational opportunities and access to digital technologies.

Meet Don! a 70 year old user that loves learning about new technologies, computers and the internet! he even took a course on how to use social networks. Don now feels empowered because he now knows how to use a computer. Besides, feeling part of this personal and digital community has made him feel younger! 

When Don thought that using a computer was not for someone his age, he discovered the Learning and Innovation Network (Red de Innovación y Aprendizaje or RIA), and now he has completed three computing courses. He also realized that being at the RIA Center is a great opportunity to share his skills with his granddaughter and other people from the community: Thank you GlobalGiving! Thank you dear doner!

Because of your participation, we were able to sponsor RIA users fom all ages, like Don, to learn English, computing, Social Media and other courses. Giving people in marginalized Mexican communities access to technology will allow them to become full-fledged digital citizens with a voice and skills that will allow them to compete in an increasingly globalized world.

Again we thank you for your generosity, your support has and will continue to play a key role in our success.
