Up To Scratch-Empowerment Through Education of Cork’s Elderly

JCI Cork Community Project aims to advance computer education of elderly people in Cork


Led by UCC final year Dentistry student Ali Khan, Up To Scratch is a Junior Chamber International Cork Project consisting of a group of young professionals who are committed to advancing computer education for elderly people here in Cork. It does this through two main ways: fundraising to improve existing computer education services here in Cork and through its online platform uptoscratch.co which provides necessary information to get started in computers. Whether you’re looking to get started yourself or whether you’re looking to get someone you know into technology for the first time uptoscratch.co provides information on equipment, on broadband, even a basic curriculum to get going.

Anyone looking to donate or get involved can contact ali@jcicork.ie.
