Computers are an integral part of our world, also among young people. Young people who today want to take online lessons or receive tasks from the school due to the COVID-19 measures taken, obviously need a computer. And unfortunately not all young people have access to a computer at home, even though this is now more necessary than ever.
With DigitalForYouth.be (founded by DNS Belgium & Close the Gap) we want to offer help here. We do this by firstly providing usable laptops for those young people who do not have access to a computer. We want to do this now more than ever, to prevent these youngsters from falling behind in learning; every day counts.
Digital For Youth existed before the COVID-19 crisis, with the aim to deliver 1,000 computers per year to vulnerable Belgian youth. With the new reality of the crisis, this goal has been enlarged to deliver more than 10,000 laptops as soon as possible, enabling all students to access at least 1 digital skills course per student.
