Romania is the second poorest country in Europe, where high income inequality persists and the educational gap between urban and rural areas gets deeper and deeper. On april 03rd, 2017, Ateliere Fara Frontiere launched a digital solidarity program, Educlick1/2017, to help reduce this divide by donating 500 refurbished computers to the best educational projects in more than 80 schools and NPOs in Romania's disadvantaged communities. Help us finance and give those computers where they are needed!
Romania is the second poorest country in Europe, where high income inequality persists and the educational gap between urban and rural areas gets deeper and deeper. And, as the European "digital skills for jobs" in Europe underlines it, computer skills will soon be mandatory for almost all tomorrow's jobs and digital analphabetism will become a determining handicap.
In response to this phenomenon and in order to reduce this divide, Ateliere Fara Frontiere has been helping since 2008 the schools and Non Profits acting in the country's most vulnerable communities by donating computers to their educational projects. Through Educlick 1/2017, 500 refurbished computers will be donated in May 2017 to more than 80 schools and NPOs in Romania's most disadvantaged communities which will improve their digital skills and brighten their professional future
Ateliere Fara Frontiere encourages the improvement of digital skills among young people, digital literacy being a must-have for all in our society. Educlick 1/2017 is an impactful solidarity project, part of the national solidarity program Educlick, through which 10.000 computers have been donated to more than 2.000 projects since 2008 and benefited to 300.000 people. Through this edition, 500 computers will be donated and more than 10.000 youngsters from disadvantaged groups will benefit.
