The Problem

  • 16% of US adults are digitally illiterate; for immigrants, the number is 36%. This lack of digital skills hinders their career and earning potential.

  • Although local governments do provide some classes on computer basics,  it is not targeted towards immigrants and nor do they teach skills to establishing a digital presence to help them maximize their income and business.

  • The sarbat initiative will

    • Provide classes for digitally challenged people.

    • Train them on the basics of computer literacy: how to use computers, basic programs like Microsoft Office, effectively utilize email, avoid online fraud, build an online presence, and how to use the internet to maximize their income potential and career.

  • sarbat continues to provide high-touch follow-up assistance even after the course, to ensure that students are putting the skills they learn in class into practice.

The Solution

sarbat provides immigrants with an opportunity to bridge the digital divide."
