Media about the Project

Children learn from home without laptops: How can we help bridge the digital divide?

Is it possible to receive education remotely without technology? It is almost impossible, but 300 thousand children in Kazakhstan are forced to study this way.

Digital Charity. A project that helps children from low-income families

There are many people and companies in Kazakhstan who are ready to help their community. Today we will share about the collaboration of two social projects - Helpcenter.life and Connect-ed.

Every little bit helps: foreigners are donating to teach Kazakhstani schoolchildren

Distance learning will continue during the coronavirus pandemic. The digital divide is even more noticeable today - not all schoolchildren have the necessary technology.
