Digital literacy program empowers parents to support their children’s education

The Ontario Trillium Foundation will allocate $70,000 CAD to a new digital literacy program to help newcomer parents at the Immigrants Working Center to learn how to use computers, smartphones and other technology devices. The initiative, organized by Empowerment Squared, Hamilton, will seek to empower adults to support their children’s education with the help of digital skills.

This new program, which is one of 204 currently receiving funding in Ontario, Canada, will support more than 100 people in the medium term. It is intended to help communities meet their needs through harvesting ideas and innovation. However, most importantly, it represents an example of collaboration between government agencies and non-profit organizations to increase the quality of living in communities through digital skills.
