The group of children behind the project “the Children of the Internet” from Santiago de Cuba gathered together in a workshop in October 2020 to brainstorm ideas to address poverty in their communities. They formulated several ideas and finally decided to support children that were suffering disproportionately from lack of educational materials especially digital gadgets and internet in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. They chose this idea due to the real need children were experiencing, which had been exacerbated by the pandemic and which had drastically shifted learning from physical classrooms to digital spaces. By providing educational information that they could collect online, the children behind the project wanted to support others with limited technological access.
