Annemijn PERRIN: CEO and founder of Digital Skills Foundation
Welcome on board on your learning journey! Learning never stops…
Digital Skills Foundation was created to ensure digital inclusion for all with a vision to allow all people to participate in development, in the large sense of the word.
Digital skills but also digital learning is part of the basic life skills one needs to succeed in life.
We believe that everyone is able to thrive in a global digital economy: individuals, civil servants, students, employees, teachers and so on. We provide training (online and offline) to all people to access life-long learning.
I hope you will enjoy your learning experience. I am always happy to receive feedback so please if you have anything to tell us so we can improve, we are always happy to hear from you.

Educator, Innovator, Motivator, team player and self starter, George joins us with his vision – Together we go further- this time with a focus on providing digital literacy to all: «Covid-19 has uncovered and deepened many inequalities in public service delivery within and across nations. One of the biggest divide is digital access, digital literacy and numeracy. One way of making sure we close this divide is to ensure that teachers, healthcare workers and/or civil servants have digital skills to deliver quality public services. »
