Having access to and being able to use a computer and the internet is critical in today's society. Of the 400+ refugees living in northern Munich, most do not had access to computers and many of them do not know how to use them. The Munich Hub provides donated laptops to refugees and teaches them how to type, surf the internet, write emails, and create their own résumés, all in German.
The long-term goal of this project is to provide refugees with the tools they need to independently fulfill tasks that must be done on a computer. The hub is working to connect with a public school in Garching, Bavaria to create courses led by local students as part of their project work. This will not only provide courses for the refugees but also provide cross-cultural interaction for both sides.
