We students of the “Leonardo da Vinci” Institute in Rome have chosen as practice action to sensitize people towards the refugees the opportunity that “Mondo Digitale”, in collaboration with Microsoft, gave us: receiving them in our school and teach them how to use a computer.
So, every Wednesday afternoon, from 14.30 to 17.00, we receive the refugees and operate as tutor trying to help them using the digital technologies and also supporting them in the use of the Italian language. We know very well that we are the future, we could do the difference: in this project we use our digital competences and, for this reason, our school gave us facilities helping us to achieve the goal.
During the first meeting, we asked them which topic would be the most interesting among these:
• to use the social network
• to use the software application
• to use the Smartphone
• to learn how to write a Curriculum
• to find a job
• to move in Rome
After having chosen the favourite item, they joined us. We formed a group of 2/3 refugees beginning to work together. In this way we became friends very soon. Our personal idea is that we’ll try to help them every time because we are convinced that everyone needs to fell himself a free person with the rights to learn and have friends.
At the end of the project it will be organised a soccer challenge between them and us with the target to rice our friendship.
