Chapterthon 2017 – Digital skills empowerment for young parents

Saint Vincent and The Grenadines Chapter – Sandy Bay Primary and Canouan Government – Kingston. This project aims to train 50 young parents between age 15-35, in the use and appreciation of the Internet. It will target two (2) underserved communities (Sandy Bay and Canouan) and it will complement the Government’s ICT initiatives of “one laptop per child” and the free, open wifi internet connection at all schools and community centres. Chapterthon is a global Internet Society (ISOC) Chapters marathon, where all ISOC Chapters can participate by developing a project within a timeline and budget to achieve a common goal for the development of education and the Internet. Once the project is finalized, the best project receives a prize. For 2017, the topic is Education and the Internet.

Projects must fit in one of the following categories:

  1. Digital literacy
  2. Online lectures
  3. Training people in the community
  4. Developing connectivity for a school or an educational institution
