Brazil is hosting the World Cup in 2014, followed by the Olympic Games in 2016 … and yet more than 50% of the country's population makes less than US$10 a day. Shocking?
A lack of investments in public health, education and transportation, combined with widespread corruption, is the reality of Brazil’s society today.
But how to improve the lives of over 100 million Brazilians suffering from unemployment, bad infrastructure, poor education and no access to healthcare?
We chose to focus on exactly those people by helping them through IT, entrepreneurship and employability courses and stimulating them to become Change Agents.
Since 1995, we have changed 1.54 million of lives and we still have a lot to do!
How do we do it? We believe that access to and education in technology can change these lives.
AND WE NEED YOU.
With US$ 10 you help to provide a short 2 week ICT & Citizenship course for a digitally excluded child.
With 50$ you help to pay an entire course for one child!
With 500$ you help to finance an entire course for 10 children!
With 10,000$ you maintain a whole CDI Community Center, providing courses for over 200 students per year!
What are you waiting for? Contribute to our work and DONATE NOW!
Pioneer of the digital inclusion movement in Latin America, CDI has been working since 1995. Our innovative operating model and proven robust methodology has been applied and replicated worldwide. Today, CDI has 780 digital inclusion spaces and a presence in 13 countries.
CDI has received many awards over the past 18 years, namely by Unesco, Unicef, CNN, Time Magazine, World Economic Forum, Clinton Global Initiative and many others.
We use knowledge to stimulate local economic development and job creation.
Technology is one of the most powerful catalysts of change at hand today. But technology, in itself, is just a tool.
The true challenge is making technology relevant and useful in the context of marginalized populations. For 18 years CDI has empowered disadvantaged groups to use Information & Communication Technologies (ICTs) as tools to exercise their full capacities as citizens and tackle issues that affect their communities.
CDI Community Centers are technology and learning centers in impoverished communities. Each CDI Community Center is a partnership with an existing leading grassroots organization. The community based organizations provide the infrastructure and CDI provides free computers and software, implements educational methods, trains instructors and monitors the schools.
CDI Schools are rooted in Latin America´s most vulnerable regions – from the sprawling urban slums of Rio to the refugee camps in Bogota, as well as in indigenous communities, prisons, juvenile delinquency centers, psychiatric institutions and hospitals for the physically disabled.
