As part of the “Yereta Folo” project, young people with a history of migration or flight were trained in the independent and safe use of computers, the Internet and smartphones.
Whether it’s creating e-mail access, registering online with government agencies and other platforms, or becoming proficient with a keyboard: without digital literacy, social participation is only possible to a very limited extent these days. Within the framework of computer courses lasting several weeks, we were able to offer around 120 people with a history of flight or migration a comprehensive range of learning opportunities in the area of digitization, while specifically addressing their individual needs.
“Learning by doing” was the main focus here: from the very beginning, the participants were motivated to independently implement their newly learned skills in practical exercises. In this way, fears could be quickly broken through and sustainable successes achieved.
We would like to thank Aktion Mensch and Aktion Neue Nachbarn for their kind support of this project.
