The Wireless Digital Literacy Initiative will reach 5,000 young people between the ages of 14 and 21, who will be facilitated with access to mobile Internet access technologies. The aim is for them to learn to work with the tools of the Internet so that they can improve their lives and communities, as explained by those responsible for the project, developed by the Wireless Association and One Economy Corporation.

The project will integrate with another initiative dedicated to young people that over the past eight years has promoted the production of digital content, in a logic of community service, Digital Connectors. The contents produced under this program cover areas as diverse as education, health, personal finance, among others.

The Digital Connector Program started in 2001 and since then it has helped 2,600 needy youths from 30 communities by integrating them into 56,000 hours of community service and the production of 5,000 hours of digital media content.
