EQUALS Digital Literacy Curriculum

Trickle Up teamed up with AVSI Uganda to test two approaches for women’s digital literacy and inclusion. The curriculum is now available for open source use.

With the support of the Digital Development Partnership, administered by the World Bank, and the EQUALS Global Partnership Access Coalition, Trickle Up teamed up with AVSI Uganda to test two approaches for women’s digital literacy and inclusion.

The cross-organizational team worked on the yearlong project with refugee and host community women in Kamwenge District, Uganda, already on their trajectory out of poverty. With the pilot, they sought to increase women’s agency, ownership and usage of smartphones to power economic and social inclusion.
