From digital literacy to freelancing

The Digital Inclusion Program (DIP) links highly vulnerable participants to digital employment through training of trainers, participant upskilling, and trainer engagement. 

 

The Digital Inclusion Program is a six-month program that teaches students to earn an income via digital freelancing. A combination of theory and practice, students begin earning after three months. The curriculum provides training on both job-specific digital skills and digital freelance business opportunities. Through the program, the learners receive support in overcoming administrative barriers, such as ID verification and access to financial services.
