ESPACE SOLIDAIRE PAQUIS
ESP is a long term partner of the Global Shapers Geneva Hub and the WEF, collaborating in R4C and other projects such as the Annual Curator Event 2014. ESP is focused on helping homeless and poor people in Geneva Paquis area; thanks to the Global Shapers and P&G donation of 20 devices, ESP set up basic language and informatics courses for its 15,000 yearly visitors.
The Kémi-Malaïka Foundation (FKM) supports and promotes education by building schools in Senegal. It is officially endorsed by the Swiss confederation and is now opening few centers in the Vaud canton to help and integrate African immigrants. R4C donation of 15 laptops and 6 mobile phones will enable the teaching activities of these centers.
LABDOO / ACTIVE ASYL
Labdoo is a humanitarian social network joined by people around the world who want to make our planet a better place by providing those in underdeveloped regions (both in the developing and the developed world) a chance at a better education. The goal of the social network is to send unused laptops, ebook readers, tablet-PCs and any device that can be loaded with education software to needy schools around the world using collaboration and without incurring any economic nor environmental costs. To date the Global Shapers donated 15 devices to Labdoo, which were sent to Zurich for tagging and installation of the educational content before being sent to Active Asyl (immigrants support Swiss NGO) for teaching purposes.
GRADUATE INSTITUTE – CODING PROGRAM FOR IMMIGRANTS
With the support of Geneva Graduate Institute, the aim of this project is to teach a web programming language to refugees and migrants living in Geneva. The initiative will provide them with the opportunity to acquire a highly transferable skill that could prove valuable in the labour market. Thus, learning how to code will not only allow them to become consumers of new technologies, but to also interact and contribute to them.
