"Digital skills for elderlies" - a great initiative, which is its kind of response to COVID-19 and the digital issues the elderlies face on a daily basis nowadays. This time at Wijkcentrum Alleman, Amstelveen our volunteers taught the target group how to use "WhatsApp".
Within this Solidarity project our initiative volunteers cooperate with our trustful partner - community center in Amstelveen “Participe Amstelland”. Because “Participe Amstelland” works with vulnerable groups of elderlies, they are allowed to carry out activities for elderlies in small groups and under strict COVID regulations. Our volunteers followed all the COVID-19 measures: they disinfected the conference room before and after the workshop, were actively using hand disinfection gel during the workshop, were wearing face masks.
This Solidarity project aims to help elderlies integrate in today’s digital environment and lifestyle. “Digital Skills for Elderlies” is being implemented under European Solidarity Corps in the Netherlands.
