Our Austrian Partner NGO – Fundraising Verband, won a 195k Euro for digital education project serving refugees, Gen 50+ and unemployed youth. It will be implemented by nonprofits.
195k EUR from the Ministry of Economics in Austria will be used on integration and inclusion of people into the labour market by raising their digital literacy, training them on digital tools and possibly provide them with education on coding and programming (if applicable).
“We will develop and stimulate education on digital literacy, digital tools and most likely even coding. One of the goals of the project is to bring those NPOs on our platform and equip them with Soft- and Hardware so they are capable of running the activities. The admin fees are not waived but will be reimbursed through the grant” – says Stephan Kropf, Fundraising Verband Austria.
The major task is to include NPOs serving refugees, Gen 50+ and unemployed youth in developing the training. Those training are supposed to be held in the student year 2018-2019. Participating NPOs are required to sign up for our donation program and will have the chance to benefit from our technology support. All admin fees are covered by the grant.
