Women and Digital Inclusion - WODIN is a voluntary Community Interest Company (CIC), that exists for the benefit of Black Immigrant Women in Merseyside. We work to End Digital Poverty by engaging black migrant women in activities, events, and opportunities to reduce Social and Digital exclusion.
How we Came About, Our story 👇
Our Organisation and History
Since 2016 we are focused on a mission, which is to fight poverty, social exclusion and reduce the Gap between the BME communities and the rest of society in the UK through connection, essential digital skills, and digital inclusion. We started as a digital social gathering when Julie Syl made a stand to share what she knows about connecting and building a community online. She purposed to equip and support black immigrant women and their families in Liverpool, to make the most of available opportunities including digital ones.
People are at the center of whatever we do. Our commitment to our beneficiaries’ well-being is complete and total and the only reason for our existence.
We take our motto “Ending Digital Poverty to Engender Social Equity” seriously and will do what it takes to achieve that primary commitment. Thus, we will intervene whenever necessary and wherever in Merseyside our services are needed with our available resources.
In 2020 and with the number of people coming to us for help, we officially registered Women and Digital Inclusion CIC (WODIN) to serve our communities wider and better.
Our work is volunteer-led and not only helps reduce social, digital, and financial exclusion, but it also keeps our communities connected and resilient through challenges and hard times. We also help them become more empowered in their financial decisions, social cohesion, and well-being. Please help us make a difference so we can continue to be there for Ethnically Diverse, minoritized, and hard-to-reach members of the community living in poverty.
The WODIN Team
Women and Digital Inclusion – WODIN’s Vision is to End Digital Poverty and engender Social Equity for Black migrant women in Merseyside.
Our mission as Women & Digital Inclusion is to bridge the socio-economic gap between black migrant communities and society in Merseyside by simplifying IT – Information Technology and Digital Resources for Black migrant women and their families so that they take their rightful place as members of their communities. We do this by providing hands-on digital inclusion tools, skills training, and needs-based services that are relevant, and convenient for them. All this contributes to the Digital Include UK drive.
