Internet literacy is desperately needed to keep Indonesia’s future bright. Today’s children will be the future workforce and education about the internet is vital for students to gain professional and interpersonal skills.
Project Child Indonesia advocates for internet literacy in a few ways. For one, we collaborate with our partner, Gameloft, to donate computers to underprivileged primary schools. Then we educate to the teachers and parents about internet taboos and what are the best ways to maintain a safe internetenvironment for their children. After the computers are secured, we have volunteers who teach the students on internet safety, coding, and benefits. Our lesson and methodologies are successful because it creates a sustainable, safe, fun, and positive learning atmosphere for the students and teachers.
Project Child’s goal is to have over 3,000 children trained on internet literacy by 2018. Currently, the program is taught to elementary schools in Yogyakarta with hopes to eventually expand to Pacitan which is a more vulnerable community.
More importantly, the goal is to not only help students gain internet literacy skills but to also benefit the community in profound ways that will make a larger impact on Indonesia. Help us educate children, teachers, and parents on internet literacy to help Indonesia grow economically, internationally, and socially.
