Mondo is the largest Estonian non-profit organisation devoted to development cooperation, global education and humanitarian aid.
Mondo’s Digital Competencies Training (DCT) is about digital literacy and computer skills, but it’s also about using digital devices and the Internet proactively as a tool to engage with society on a professional, educational and personal level.
While also encompassing the basics of device usage, the program puts a special emphasis on safety and problem-solving. To further the impact, smartphones are central to the program – as the participants are most likely to own a smartphone as their first digital device, the training provides them with relevant and easily applicable everyday skills.
Mondo’s DCT is based on the DigComp framework and has been developed with the Principles for Digital Development in mind. The structure of the training is based on the five key aspects of the European Commission’s DigComp framework: information and data literacy, communication and collaboration, digital content creation, safety, and problem-solving. Exact lesson plans are adjusted to fit the baseline knowledge level of each beneficiary group.
Since 2021 Mondo has carried out DCTs to the following target groups in Uganda and Kenya:
- Refugee and host community youth from vocational training centres in KyakaII and Rwamwanja refugee settlement, Uganda;
- Refugee and host community youth from vocational training centres in Bidibidi and Rhino camp refugee settlements in West Nile region, Uganda;
