Emakina/Foundation awarded at the IMA for the Close the Gap projectBrice Le Blévennec
Close the Gap is an international not-for-profit organisation that wants to bridge the digital divide in the world by offering high-quality computers. The computers are reconfigured and are used for projects in the field of education and IT-development in developing countries.
Thanks to the donations of numerous companies, Close the Gap has been able to deploy tens of thousands of PCs, allowing local organisations to develop its IT skills. Even though the projects selected by Close the Gap appear to be very diverse at first, they all have one thing in common: they all help individuals and their communities to make progress by using new technologies.
Emakina/Foundation, which voluntarily supports humanitarian or cultural projects, has recently set up a partnership with Close the Gap to develop their new website. This new collaboration with Emakina is the starting point of a new strategic partnership for this organisation that has recently been recognized by the Department of Public Information network of the United Nations.
