Over 1,000 computers for families in difficulty from the FWB


The Wallonia-Brussels Federation (FWB) has set foot in Flanders and is also embarking on an equipment plan to reduce the digital divide and the risk of dropping out of school among confined students.

“A public market has been launched for the acquisition of more than 1,000 refurbished computers,” said the cabinet of the Minister-President of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation (FWB), Pierre-Yves Jeholet. The procedure is underway and should be completed in the coming days. Once the computers are acquired, it will still be necessary to determine how to distribute them among the students who need them most, announces the Echo.

The digital divide in the south of the country is much larger than in Flanders. In the north, the number of students without a home computer is estimated to be between 1% and 2%. On the French-speaking side, we are talking about 15% of students who are not connected, according to the secretariat for Catholic education (Segec). 95% have a mobile phone, but the tool remains limited in the context of learning. Beyond these 1,000 computers, other initiatives have been launched to help students.
