Founded in 1995, pioneer of the digital inclusion movement in Latin America, CDI is one of the leading social enterprises in the world with a unique socio-educational approach. Our mission is to transform lives and strengthen low-income communities by empowering people with information and communication technology. We use technology as a medium to fight poverty, stimulate entrepreneurship and create a new generation of changemakers. Today, we are a network of 803 self-managed and self-sustaining CDI Community Centers throughout Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, UK and Jordan – monitored and coordinated by our 33 regional and international offices. In addition to low-income communities, our schools are also present in indigenous communities, psychiatric clinics, hospitals for mentally and physically disabled, as well as youth & adult detention facilities. CDI is an international NGO headquartered in Rio de Janeiro with a development office in the USA. More than 1.25 million at-risk youth and adults have been impacted by CDI—last year alone over 255,000 people were benefited by CDI programs and had access its unique pedagogy of community empowerment through technology.
