Digital Inclusion offers IT skills to everyone

16/12/2019

The Digi4All project, from social enterprise Digital Inclusion in Luxembourg, is helping to conquer the digital divide, giving more people access to digital literacy skills and computer knowledge.

In Luxembourg, a new project is helping to conquer the digital divide, by giving more people access to digital literacy skills and computer knowledge.

The Digi4All project has been created by Digital Inclusion, a non-profit organisation that wants everyone in Luxembourg to have equal access to information technology. For more than three years, Digital Inclusion has been refurbishing and redistributing computers, tablets and smartphones, and offering them to people who wouldn't otherwise be able to access them.

As Digital Inclusion’s Patrick de la Hamette explains:“AlthoughLuxembourg already has a high social cohesion, many people here – including refugees – still lack access to computers and basic IT knowledge.”

Now, thanks to funding from the ESF and support from Luxembourg's Ministry of Labour, Digital Inclusion has expanded its offer with a programme of IT classes and workshops.

Although Digi4All classes are primarily designed for jobseekers, they are open to everyone. They cover a range of topics relating to the use of computers in daily life as well as work, and include established qualifications like the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL), as well as broader digital literacy and media topics.

The Digi4All project is a key part of Digital Inclusion's wider goals, which include giving everyone in Luxembourg access to digital communication and technical equipment, and promoting social inclusion through digital technology and digital literacy skills.
