Let's do it! Accessibility without barriers

By Luisa Fernanda Galeano Martinez | International Cooperation Coordinator

Undoubtedly small actions change the world and we expect this project to change the world of many people.

In June, MAKAIA launched a call for social organizations working with people with disabilities, we received dozens of applications and we chose the five organizations with better focus and those which meet the requirements of a digital infrastructure base to work on strengthening its technological capabilities.

The organizations selected were: Fundación Óyeme, Fundación Amigos con Calor Humano, Centro de Rehabilitación, Mónica Uribe con Amor y Discapacidad sin Barreras – Aula abierta. So far we have worked closely with these organizations to identify their needs and establish support mechanisms that we will provide them.

In order to strengthen its technological capabilities, MAKAIA has provided organizations: a feasibility assessment to be recipients of donations of software; when organizations were eligible, we started the donation process and some organizations are already enjoying licenses, Google or Microsoft, antivirus and others. Furthermore, each organization has carried out an evaluation of digital maturity, which is a self-assessment where organizations answer some questions about the use of technology in their organizations, the result is a level of technology that opens the way to determine what will be the accompaniment in each of them; and this support began with the realization of a digital maturity advisory.

In addition, we have granted licenses for the Platform Nodo Ká, a platform created by Makaia where organizations can manage all processes of cooperation; with this license, a training component was carried out on the use of the platform.

Have been made, technical visits with our expert staff, in order to conduct a review of the technological infrastructure of organizations, how is their internet connection? how they use technology? who use technology? how many computers they have in the organization? among other observations.

Finally, recently we made a visit of formative proposal, where MAKAIA presented to organizations the contents of the formations that we will make in matters of technology.

One of our organizations said in a meeting: "We want the technology to be as friendly to our organization and become an enabler for our work, and allowing more contact with our target population due to the possibility of communicating through ICT"

Once again, thank you for your support and for contributing to improving the quality of life of many people.

Best wishes,

 

MAKAIA group!
