Connectis signs a permanent collaboration agreement with the Fundación Potenciar Solidario for the delivery of technological material. The first transfer of equipment was recently carried out.

Potenciar Solidario is the Foundation that accompanies more than 350 social organizations in Argentina in the development of social programs aimed at the most vulnerable people. One of them is aimed at reducing the digital gap, that is, the imbalance in the access, use and impact of information and communication technologies, which impacts the development opportunities of communities.

At Connectis we are convinced that digital transformation must include all people so that it contributes effectively to social well-being and is sustainable over time.

Committed to the development of the societies where we are present, we have chosen Fundación Potenciar Solidario to collaborate with its Digital Breaches programme. Within this framework, Connectis Argentina has signed an agreement to permanently transfer hardware to the Foundation. In a first installment, a significant contribution of equipment such as CPUs, notebooks, monitors, keyboards and other accessories has been transferred. This is delivered to the NGOs that participate in the Digital Divide project to improve and expand their digital classrooms and offices.

The Potenciar Solidario Digital Breach Program was born in 2021 and, so far, has contributed to 6 NGOs that work with more than 3,500 beneficiaries. These organizations have thus begun their digital transformation by incorporating equipment, training their teams, implementing digital learning for their enrolled participants (children, youth and adults) and digitizing processes to be more efficient. By the end of 2022, the Program already has 13 participating NGOs.

We appreciate and celebrate the enormous commitment of the Potenciar Solidario Foundation.

At Connectis we are pleased to contribute to bridging the digital divide in alliance with the Fundación Potenciar Solidario.
