Final Report - Building Digital capacities

By Catalina Escobar | catalina.escobar@makaia.org

Since 2017, MAKAIA has managed two digital inlcusion centers (Telecenters) close to Bogotá, one in Suba and one on Kennedy, in collaboration with Tigo, a local telecom.

Many people go to them to learn digital skills. We have partered with the Secretariat of Social Integration of Bogotá. They offer comprehensive services to the population between 6 and 18 years of age with moderate, severe cognitive disability and autism.

At the telecenters we train children and youth between 8 and 18 years old. We work in collaboration with one or two psychotherapists from the Secretariat of Social Integration of Bogotá, training youth in:

  • Sígueme (Follow me): Application developed by the Orange Foundation and the University of Granada, with the aim of supporting the development of the perceptual-visual and cognitive-visual process. It includes videos, photographs, drawings, pictograms and games.
  • GCompris: program with different activities for children between 2 and 10 years old. Educational video games that allow them to practice calculations, elaborate some texts and basic computer skills.

Additionally, basic computer skils and some fun and easy-to-use tools such as Paint are used.

This year, 50 children and youth with dissabilities have been reached in these centers thanks to our work and your donation. 

This is the last report that we will be publishing about this project since is now fully funded. Thanks to all your donations, we have been able to reach thousands of people with disabilities in Colombia and have developed methodologies that help us reach them in an efficient and effective way.

Please visit other projects implemented by MAKAIA and continue supporting our work.
