COMPUTER PROGRAM

Computer Program

     Recognizing the importance of technology, especially among the poor in Mexico, VAMOS! began our computer program in 2006.  VAMOS! employs four Computer teachers who provide once-a-week classes to children and women in each of our centers.  Our classes include lessons on computer basics, WORD , Excel, PowerPoint and other programs.  Of course, our families cannot afford to purchase Microsoft programs so we also teach them the freeware and shareware versions of word processing, data work, and working with pictures. 

VAMOS! employs four Computer teachers who provide once a week classes to children and women in each of our centers.

This way they will be able to work on their own ideas and projects away from class with ease.  The goal is to have them prepared to be able to do their homework, reports and job applications on the computer and have the computer skills and confidence that they will need in their future.

THE VAMOS! IMPACT

Educational Opportunities: Access to computers and the internet opens up a wealth of educational opportunities for children. For adult women and mothers, internet access can facilitate lifelong learning, skill development, and access to community and educational resources that can improve their employment prospects and overall well-being.

Empowerment through Information: Internet access provides families with valuable information on a wide range of topics, including health, finance, education, and job opportunities.

Improved Communication: Internet access enables families to stay connected with loved ones, even if they are separated by long distances. This is particularly important for migrant families who may have relatives living in other regions or countries. Being able to communicate regularly through email, social media, or video calls can strengthen family ties and provide emotional support during challenging times.

Digital Literacy Skills: The VAMOS! computer program not only provides access to computers and the internet but also offers training in digital literacy skills. Learning how to use computers and navigate the internet effectively equips both children and adult women with essential skills for the digital age. These skills are increasingly important for academic success, employment opportunities, and participation in modern society.

VAMOS! IS COMMITTED TO CLOSING THE DIGITAL DIVIDE BY PROVIDING CLASSES AND INTERNET ACCESS TO OUR FAMILIES.
