“Equal access to digital media must become the norm”

Patrick Providing refurbished computers to students in need Luxembourg, Luxembourg

Volunteers across Luxembourg help to distribute refurbished computers to students in need across the country. “Ever since the association was founded in 2016, Digital Inclusion has been promoting access to the digital world.” Patrick explains. “Our core activity has always been to refurbish computer donations, but our work took a new turn with the closure of schools. We have launched a new programme to distribute computers to households for home schooling.” The lockdown and social distance rules didn’t make things easy for Patrick and his team, but they could count on the help of volunteers from the local population. “Our project promotes equal digital access for all, but this recent action shows how we can also aim for equal opportunity in the context of an education system that is becoming more and more digital,” Patrick concludes.
