Summary

Computer literacy is essential for success in our world's growing technological society. Poverty limits access to computers and training opportunities for children, youth and young parents of Thailand. This project will establish and equip two computer labs in central and northeast regions of Thailand. Access to computer labs with training will equip learners with the knowledge and skills providing opportunities to advance in education and secure job skills for future careers.

Challenge

Impoverished Thai children, ages 5-14, account for most of the more than 1.3 million children not attending or prematurely dropping out of school. Young adults without computer skills are disadvantaged in seeking employment opportunities. The cycle of poverty continues as knowledge and skills become seemingly unattainable in an ever-advancing technological world. Access to obtain technological skills is prohibitive for the impoverished who view such skills as a luxury instead of necessity.

Solution

Access to learn and apply skills demonstrated in digital computer labs provide students with opportunities to advance in technological skills. The project equips digital labs with twelve laptops and accessories in each center located in central and northeast regions of Thailand. Instructors with up-to-date curriculum will provide participants access to technological training which is critical to empowering students with marketable skills in today's technology-saturated industries and commerce.

Long-Term Impact

Computer literacy has advanced to a fundamental skill of communication, education and commerce. The development of technological knowledge and skills empowers the learner a competitive advantage with educational opportunities reducing the school dropout rate and increasing collegiate participation. The realistic opportunity to eradicate poverty through advancing viable skill sets among youth impacts local, national and global communities as participants are empowered to seek sustainable careers.
