The Dominican Republic RSC Team as part of its plan for Social Responsibility 2015, is about to start a program for basic training in computing specially for individuals with hearing problems
The program consists of free teaching basic computing classes, web browsing and social network usage to individuals with hearing impair. The training will be to young people and adults at GBM’s offices
It will be promoted with the help of voluntary interpreters Jehovah's Witnesses, who at the present bring literacy to hearing impaired in the whole country. They will be in charge of the ALS classes (American Sign Language) taught by a GBM’s collaborator.
Yakayra Portes Human Capital Manager at Dominican Republic and member of the RSC team added:
“This experience is life healing; the satisfaction we as participants feel is incredible. To know that through GBM we can help so many people in need is priceless”.
GBM will provide physical resources such as: room, projection equipment and computers for the practice exercises, at the end of the course each participant will have a certificate if they complied with the hours, and those with the three modules completed will receive a laptop.
