Poznań’s new scheme to prevent digital exclusion got underway when the mayor of the city handed over the first free computer with free internet access.
Mayor Ryszard Grobelny handed over the computer to mark the start of the 2013 Przeciwdziałanie wykluczeniu cyfrowemu w Poznaniu scheme. The project will help up to 1,000 families in Poznań, who might otherwise not be able to afford internet technology.
The recipients are chosen from those who get social benefits, or who have disabilities or learning difficulties. Foster families are among those who will benefit. The computer equipment is free for five years.
