Digital Skills for Disadvantaged Children in China

By Sebastien Carrier, Ph.D. | Program Director

As we are entering the year of the Dragon, we reflect on the past year — a journey marked by learning, collaboration, success, and a sharp rebound in our activities. We want to take a moment to celebrate the milestones that we achieved in 2023.

 

In 2023, our digital literacy program experienced a significant increase in volunteer and student enrollment, reaching under-served children in Shanghai, Shaanxi, Hubei, Henan, Fujian, and Anhui provinces.Throughout the year, more than 200 volunteers and teachers delivered an impressive total of 1,904 online or offline lessons to 2,065 students. Compared with 2022, we are pleased to report that we have increased by 183% our number of beneficiaries, thus enabling more students to acquire knowledge and make progress in their computer and life skills.

 

New classes in STEM, logic, mathematics, coding (Scratch 3.0), graphical programming, embedded system design (Micro:bit), and social-emotional learning were added to our curriculum to enhance our students’ knowledge and learning experience. These classes employed innovative teaching methods to make it easier for students to understand programming concepts, develop creativity and problem-solving skills, and recognize and manage emotions.

 

For the upcoming spring semester, we will continue to provide engaging computer and life skills lessons to more than 900 under-served students in China.

 

In these unprecedented times, we especially want to thank all of you, our volunteers, donors, and other supporters. We need your support more than ever to keep our programs running sustainably in 2024. We sincerely thank all of you, and wish everyone good health, good luck, and much happiness!
