FROM DEF ON THE FIELD

Financial Integration to Strengthen Aspirations

Digital Empowerment Foundation is notably particular in bridging the aspirational gap by strengthening the underserved communities through financial integration. And the project Amazon DFI (Digital Financial Inclusion) is going a step further with its motive to digitally integrate those communities such that they are better equipped to deal with their finances. To serve the needs of digitally unaware communities, the Amazon DFI program has started on the literacy aspect through the LMS-Chatbot that has been particularly designed to address the mission of the program, furthering the vision of Digital Empowerment Foundation (DEF).

Building STEM Temperament through Digital Platforms Among Young Students

Digital literacy has proved to be essential among all age groups in this age of digital transformation. Digital Empowerment Foundation has been actively engaged, even before the dawn of the digital age, in making sure that access to digital devices doesn’t pose an obstacle to digital literacy so that the marginalised community across India can avail services that enable them to get their basic needs. One such effort has been the very effective and ever-growing CIRC (Community Information Resource Centre). The CIRC in Donabagatta village of Shimoga district in Karnataka has recently focussed on promoting the overall growth of students in that region by conducting various activities.
