Committee for the Democratization of Information Technology (Comité para la Democratización de la Informática) (CDI) (Chile)

The Committee for the Democratization of Information Technology (CDI), was founded in Brazil in 1995 as a pioneering initiative to promote the democratization of access to information technologies among inhabitants of the communities of Rio de Janeiro. With the support and enthusiasm of companies and volunteers who embraced the cause of digital inclusion, the organization opened the first Schools of Informatics and Citizenship in diverse socially vulnerable communities of Rio de Janeiro. Over time, the organization extended its scope of action and began to bring digital empowerment to individuals in several countries through a network of partner organizations, thus reaching Chile. We are a social organization that believes in the power of digital empowerment: the ethical and citizen appropriation of technology that generates autonomy and transforms realities. We develop methodologies of entrepreneurial training and the use of digital tools and disseminate them through different channels. In addition, we expanded the performance and local impact of community facilitators. We empower individuals to reprogram realities. We want to stimulate spaces that prepare individuals to be protagonists of a great transformation. That they dominate the language of our time in its multiple dimensions. We want to generate autonomy and develop skilled people in the codes of a new do. That they are able to formulate new questions, find new answers and that they can transform their realities. And so, bring a new meaning to the concept of educating. Transforming lives, communities and the world.
