Comcast Partners with SABEResPODER to Help  Fight Digital Divide Amongst Hispanics

LOS ANGELES, CA (rushPRnews) 05/09/17 — A digital literacy campaign will provide technology and internet access to Latino families over the next three months. The initiative is a production by SABEResPODER (SEP), a URWelcome Technologies platform, made possible thanks to Internet Essentials from Comcast.

 

The campaign will feature a computer lab that will travel the Greater Houston area, providing a total of 65 two-hour workshops aimed at developing basic computer skills among low-income Spanish-speaking residents. Nearly 800 unique individuals are estimated to benefit from this innovative partnership supported by Comcast’s nationally acclaimed high speed internet adoption program for low-income households, Internet Essentials. In addition, a digital campaign will aim at raising awareness of the Internet Essentials program, as 96% of SEP’s community members are unaware of it’s existence, yet at least 60% could qualify.

 

“This initiative is an innovative way to connect the Latino community with more online resources,” said Amir Hemmat, President & CEO of URWelcome. “Providing access to the internet and technology education helps community members overcome barriers. This program will provide families with tools and opportunities they need to achieve their goals.”

 

SEP strives to connect the Hispanic community with information and services that will help families succeed in all their digital literacy needs. The partnership with Comcast aligns to their commitment to successfully integrate technology in Hispanic households, and help prepare them for their future. 

 

“We are grateful for our partnerships with SEP. Our combined efforts to conquer the digital divide in our local communities is of the upmost importance,” added Ralph Martinez, Senior Vice President for Comcast’s Houston Region.
