Since we created this project in Global Giving, we have been preparing for the formal launch of the digital literacy activities for Venezuelans:
- Needs assessments workshops (see picture): we have conducted 3 workshops with migrant Venezuelans to understand their information needs. Thanks to these workshop we have learnt that most of them have mobile phones but no data plans, that most come with several members of the family and that the information they need is mostly related to health, education and jobs. We have also learnt that they have a lot of information needs and don't know where to access information. This will be the focus of our work at MAKAIA.
- App development: we are developing an app, in partnership with Alpha Lumen (Brasil) to help Venezuelan migrants find the information they need. The app will be launched in January for Beta testing,
- Organizations database: we are building a database of social and public sector organizations that are providing support to Venezuelan migrants and refuges.
- Partner Network: we have met with key organizations like the Red Cross, Acnur and other local and international organizations in order to coordinate local education efforts among migrants.
