Digital access for people in precarious circumstances, an initiative that aims to reduce the digital divide of sex workers

The Ramon Molinas Foundation is collaborating with the Àmbit Prevenció Foundation to provide access to information and communication technologies and improve the digital skills of sex workers.

The collaboration between the two organisations will address the five aspects of the digital divide experienced by the participants in the Àmbit Prevenció Foundation’s project. Firstly, the initiative will provide access to the technology itself. Secondly, it will train users in digital skills. Thirdly, it will encourage personal autonomy with regards to using information and communication technology and help users to exercise their rights and improve access to key resources using digital tools; in parallel, they will be provided with the support to maintain these skills and knowledge. Lastly, the initiative will help users to get the best of digital tools depending on their own personal goals.

The initiative will help with access to educational resources, competing administrative or medical tasks, training in the use of applications to help with daily life, maintaining connections with family and friends, and taking part in support networks, or access to culture using digital materials, among others.

 

The Àmbit Prevenció Foundation, an organisation that watches over people at risk of social exclusion

The Àmbit Prevenció Foundation was launched in 1993 with the aim of improving quality of life for people at risk of social exclusion. With its base in Sants-Montjuic, the organisation supports and empowers people to become active in their own transformation. Outreach work is fundamental to raising awareness of the foundation’s work, allowing project staff to design innovative projects tailored to the needs of the project’s participants.

When it was launched, the programmes at the Àmbit Prevenció Foundation focused principally on the impact and prevention of HIV and aids, fighting for the rights of victims and against stigma for people with a positive HIV diagnosis. Recently, the foundation has specialised in the support of women that have suffered from violence in any form. Gender equality is now one of the cornerstones of the foundation’s projects and activities, and is a core priority in the organisation’s objectives.
