Our world is facing challenges unlike any we have seen before. The urgent need for action on issues like climate change, the deep digital divide, lack of inclusion, and global pandemics calls for a new era of shared responsibility.

Intel have partnered with the Digital Poverty Alliance to provided funding two different projects as part of our RISE strategy – our commitment to positive global impact embedded in our purpose to create technology that enriches the lives of every person on earth.

Firstly we are providing funding for the second stage of the Tech4Teachers initiative, and secondly we have partnered with The Digital Povery Alliance to launch the proof-of-concept Tech4PrisonLeavers initiative, providing $150,000 funding alongside support from Trailblazers Mentoring Charity to provide devices and mentoring for young ex-offenders .

Tech4PrisonLeavers Scheme

Intel have partnered with The Digital Poverty Alliance to launch a proof-of-concept initiative to provide young men being released from prison with the digital skills and access they need to access employment opportunities and support their ongoing development.
