As technological advancement continues to rise in the 21st Century, the technology gap between developed and developing countries grows wider. In Thailand, one of the contributors to this disparity is the computer illiteracy within the slums. This chasm is especially evident in young children. The first and foremost goal of this project is to help minimize this technology gap by introducing young children to basic computer skills at the Duang Prateep Foundation of the Klong Toey slum in Bangkok, Thailand.
