Making Digital Work for EVERYONE

SHARP DIGITAL AND HERMANUS RED CROSS

Since July last year, we have been working closely with SHARP Digital (a registered non-profit based in Hermanus who is working to turn the tide onthe digital divide).

In addition to providing some much needed financial support to the non-profit,we also worked together on an important data collection project. This was designed to help Food4Love and the Hermanus Red Cross find the best way to digitally track the food distribution across Greater Hermanus while building the digital skills of some people in the community at the same time.

DATA COLLECTION PROJECT- MILESTONES

  • September 2020 . SHARP Digital created a new course on digital datacollection called COLLECT, SAVE and USE (by 9 February 2021, 53individuals had taken the course).

  • November 2020 - Digital survey was conducted across Hermanus and Zwelihle.
