Offer children in the foster homes access to skilled technical jobs in offices with long-term employment contracts. Thus, we would substantially increase the number of reintegrated people in the PDB (Don Bosco Project) while strengthening them at the same time. This goal will be achieved in a five-years project, divided in two phases of one and four years respectively. These phases will be independent yet complementary:
- The first phase called “Don Bosco Project Digital Education Santa Cruz” establishes and homogenizes digital education for children and teenagers from 6 to 17 years old, in all households and schools in the project, offering a degree recognized by the Ministry of Education of the country at the end of secondary education that is, Computers Operator. This degree offers solid professional careers such as Technical Administrative Assistant. This stage takes advantage of the pre-existing infrastructure and training, giving 2,000 children between the ages of 4 and 17 years old living the Don Bosco Project experience in digital immersion.
- The second phase, called Digital Education PDBSC-CFM (FileMaker Course), corresponds to a 4 years period, including 2 years of training and 2 years of practise and production. With this training, approved by the Ministry of Education of the country, the children will obtain the degree of Technical Developer in Digital Solutions, as well as the possibility to certify their expertise in one of the world’s leading software companies for those interested. Once the first year is completed, the boys and girls start working in the field of project practise and production, and will be able to use their knowledge in concrete fields of application and market solutions.
- Active leadership from our organization, cooperating throughout the whole process with Latin America. Project management on the ground provides high-quality know-how using: academic training, extensive professional experience in the fields of education, training, new technologies, business management, dealing with street children and a deep knowledge of Bolivia as well as the neighbouring Spanish-speaking countries like Argentina, Paraguay, Chile and Peru.
- Application of information and communication technologies, which are e-learning modular solutions with RAD development tools. These allow customization and implementation, as well as the subsequent packetization in other locations in Bolivia and neighbouring Spanish-speaking countries. Designing courses that have great demand in the country and involve regulated, long-term contracts.
- Active commitment of all the parts involved in the process: governmental organizations (Child Welfare Department, the city’s Mayor Office and the Ministry of Education), teachers and the Counterpart managers, national businesses and Cooperand with Latin America.
- Agreement with the Salesians and Don Bosco Project in order to implement the tools and the whole structure nationally, so that in a few years all maintenance, upgrades, modifications and extensions can be supported by the staff of the Incubator (last year studies) of Digital Education.
- Applying the "Oil Stain Strategy" in the Don Bosco Project throughout South America.
