What is the digital divide?
The growing gap between underprivileged members of society, who have no access to the internet or digital devices.
What are the causes of the digital divide?
- Differences in cultures, communities, societies
- Weak access to IT
- Lack of information and knowledge
- Lack of education
How can we bridge the digital divide?
We have been handing out digital devices to families and children who are digitally excluded so that they are able to develop new skills and be independent. Along with this, we offer a digital skills workshop/course which allows learners to develop and gain various digital skills, which will give them that extra confidence and boost! The Digital Divide is a sad reality of the world we live in today. Since the rise of the pandemic, we noticed a huge digital barrier in the community – Children were unable to work online because they had no means of accessing online lessons, parents were unable to work from home because they couldn’t afford the correct equipment, and if it wasn’t a lack of digital devices, it was the lack of skills in underprivileged families. To tackle this problem, and to #fixthedigitldivide, our team have worked very hard to end digital inclusion by delivering devices to those who are digitally excluded. By doing so, we have supported hundreds of children with their education, and an equal number of parents, who are now able to work without worry of poor performance. Digital divide doesn’t just refer to a lack of access to the internet, it also applies to those who have low literacy skills, and a lack of confidence. The fear of ‘making a mistake’ overpowers so many individuals, that they refuse to work towards improving and gaining skills. To confront this issue, we stayed online to support individuals with online applications and other online service. Our services were switched to online platforms which were used to upskill our learners.
