Working to fulfil its vision of a society of equal opportunities, Bodossaki Foundation created the programme “Digital School for All”, whose aim is to contribute to the modernisation and upgrading of public education in Greece.
The programme’s first phase was based on the recognition that ensuring equitable access for all school students in the country to the new form of education (digital and distance learning), which emerged as a need in the context of the Covid-19 crisis, is imperative, as distance learning is not a temporary solution but the new reality that students and teachers alike must integrate in their daily life. Thus, the programme responds to the Ministry of Education’s invitation to strengthen the country’s educational structures with tablets. It aims to provide to students who until today lacked the necessary technological equipment, equal opportunities for development with other students but also, in the longer term, to deepen their digital skills.
To maximise the programme’s social impact, the Foundation, in addition to participating with its own funds, joined forces with third parties that readily responded to its invitation.
We would like to warmly thank for their contribution and their high social awareness, Public-Media Markt (for offering 1000 tablets), Allianz, EYDAP (the Athens Water Supply and Sewerage Company), Eurobank, MYTILINEOS, BCG, the individual donors who supported the programme, and Mrs Arianne Kontellis for her donation, which will be used to provide technological equipment to schools in Lesvos island.
Together, we offer 3,574 tablets in total to public secondary education schools in the country, for distribution to students who need them.
Delivery of the tablets is organised by Bodossaki Foundation and the beneficiary schools and students will be selected at the suggestion of the Ministry of Education, according to the identified needs.
The next phase of the “Digital School for All” programme will be implemented through the regular grant-making activities of Bodossaki Foundation for the country’s schools, thus further enhancing their digital capabilities.
