Computers for region's talents
1 collaboration proposal
How many companies like Picsart or other Unicorn startups (with a market value of $1 billion) we could have today if 10 years ago we would provide the youth living in the regions with computers?
One of the main reasons why children and teens don't get professional education is because they don't have computers. Statistics shows that only 15-20% of the best students have computers, and the others either have smartphones, or don't have any devices.
According to the statistics, in 2021-2022 the project helped to provide devices to people living in the Armenian regions, and about 59% of those who received computers have already got remote jobs, so they wont' have to leave their towns and villages. In this way, the helps to solve the demographic problem that is a significant challenge for Armenia.
