Digital inclusion

Fighting digital exclusion and empowering social actors in the support they provide for those experiencing digital problems.

The digital divide is a problem that affects a large number of citizens but is concentrated among the most vulnerable. Aware of the challenge that this represents for the most disadvantaged, the Foundation is committed to overcoming digital exclusion.

Our activities

  • we provide financial aid to the actors in society who provide digital support for disadvantaged groups
  • we create networking possibilities and empower those working in the social sector, notably through, a platform that enables them to give support to those experiencing digital problems
  • we highlight the inequalities generated by the digital divide and monitor its development through the Barometer of Digital Inclusion
  • and we raise awareness among government bodies and citizens about the problems encountered by those with little or no access to the digital world

Digital inclusion is part of the programme Social justice & poverty
