Who we are
Digi Tanoda Foundation is a non governmental organization working in the field of education. The purpose of Digi Tanoda is to promote equal opportunities for underprivileged primary school students by improving their digital communication skills and prepare them for the safe use of Internet. Being confident in the digital world will improve their learning abilities and provide more equal opportunities during their life.
We are all volunteers, with different backgrounds (pedagogy, IT, law, etc.). We organize free afternoon classes for children between the age of 10-14 in two districts of Budapest where the standard of living is generally lower.
What we do
We develop the skills needed for creating digital content, enabling children to communicate and cooperate in an efficient way, search, evaluate and understand data and stay safe in the digital world. We empower them to become active creators of digital content – learning the basics of webpage development, photo editing, coding, etc.
We show children that there are various ways digital tools can be applied in their day-to-day lives – obtaining information, communication, entertainment, etc.
We provide the hardware and software needed for the digital course.
Our courses are designed and led by teachers, IT professionals and other volunteers. This structure enables children to build relationship with people from various social and professional backgrounds.
Our volunteers actively help by sharing their knowledge which will ultimately strengthen their social sensitivity.
