Summary

Millions of rural, migrant and low-income children in China do not have access to computer classes. This project will help over 1,000 disadvantaged children and youth in China to improve their digital skills, learning about internet security, search engine, Microsoft Office, and other digital tools. This will improve their confidence and self-esteem, and will increase their access to better work opportunities in the future.

Challenge

Digital skills are very limited for many rural, migrant and other disadvantaged children in China. Many of them have no computers in their homes or schools, and even where there are computers in schools, there is a shortage of computer teachers. While digital skills have been essential for success in the last two decades, they have acquired an even greater significance in the context of the current pandemic as they have become indispensable to most of our daily activities.

Solution

This project supports students in two aspects through weekly online classes. First, we help them identify potential risks of being online, such as frauds, theft of personal information, illegal activities and sexual exploitation. Second, we equip children with the knowledge to reach their full potential. Through this project, students will learn typing, searching and acquiring information from the internet, finding and utilizing learning resources, and using Microsoft Office.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that all children should have access to quality learning. Without digital skills, children will struggle to reach their full potential and to find and secure decent work. This project equips students with a wide array of skills - such as Microsoft Office, resume preparation, online safety and online searching - so that they are better prepared to meet the challenges of a tech-focused society.
