The Filipino Canadian Association of Cochrane Alberta (FCACA) has partnered with another nonprofit to teach seniors how to navigate the digital world.
FCACA and Seniors on the Bow, an organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for people aged 50 years old and over, will offer a free digital literacy program.
CochraneNow has reported that “Seniors Portal: Gateway to Digital Success” will run Saturdays starting on September 17.
The program will continue weekly into December.
The digital literacy course is funded by a federal New Horizons for Seniors grant.
CochraneNow reported that computers are provided for use, as well as refreshments.
"We're going to be teaching our seniors the basics of computers so they aren't left out when it comes to technology,” FCACA vice-president Edwin Aguanta said in the report.
Aguanta continued, “It's also a great way for them to connect with their loved ones, whether it's here or abroad."
