Algarrobo Abuelo will provide access to digital technologies for seniors in San Luis, Argentina

The government of San Luis province in Argentina, announced its new digital inclusion campaign that will target senior members from the community. In order to do so, seniors from the province will receive tablets with special applications designed to support them on daily tasks such as asking for medical support, accessing audiovisual contents, paying for public services or setting alarms.

The “Algarrobo Abuelo” campaign is part of the digital plan San Luis 3.0 that seeks to digitalize the community’s public services. It will also provide personalized support to teach seniors how to use their new devices.
