This project offers them the opportunity to have unlimited
access to the new YouBridge laptops in a controlled and supervised
environment. They will be educated in basic computer skills and be
able to do research for their studies.
As they are very keen to come in contact with people from all
over the world, the YouBridge platform will play an important role
in this communication.

actively participate on the online YouBridge network.
