Being able to understand and use technology is important in the 21st-century. Someone who possesses these skills is known to be digitally literate. Driven with the aim to make every Pakistani girl digitally literate, we acknowledge the need of making digital literacy accessible to everyone.
We are excited to announce our collaboration with DigiEduHack to host the first-ever "Making Digital Literacy Accessible for All" challenge in Pakistan.
#DigiEduHackPK, a free-of-cost 2-day long virtual challenge from 9-10 November where students aged 15-24 from all over Pakistan work in teams to develop solutions to the challenge all while learning about design thinking, entrepreneurship, and digital literacy.
Encouraging collaboration, co-creation, and real-life change; the challenge will give participants the chance to experience the future of digital education while understanding how they can make digital literacy accessible to women, youth, elderly, disabled, and other disadvantaged groups.
With the help of speakers and mentors, participants will develop solutions that will be presented to a panel of judges who then will be determining the winning team of the challenge.
