Breaking technological barriers

The Balia Foundation promoted the ‘Conecta joven - Conecta mayores’ programme, which aims to close the digital gap between the population with fewer resources and difficulties in accessing the information society, and to strengthen the self-esteem of youths and adults.

  • Young volunteers train the elderly in the use of new technologies, by preparing workshops and basic IT courses.
  • One of the young participants in the programme took part in the Imagine Silicon Valley 2017 programme with a grant from the Foundation.
