Providing quality and intensive education for children from the poor and backward community can increase their chances of ending the poverty cycle. In this age of digitalisation, computational thinking and digital literacy are highly sought-after skills. Cristian Bello understood the importance of imparting digital skills to underprivileged kids, to prepare them for the future. He, therefore, started a social enterprise called Bomberbot in 2014 with a mission to bring digital skills to girls and boys around the globe
Aims to help digital skills
Based out of Amsterdam, Bomberbot brings digital skills to children in the Netherlands through a range of both school programs and after school activities. It enables teachers to teach programming at primary/middle schools as children practice the concepts by playing games and solving puzzles. Notably, the Dutch startup provides teachers – with nor prior programming experience – with all the tools to be able to teach programming in middle/elementary schools.
