European Social Risk Fund Grants

Internet Power Project

In June 2003, WISE KIDS was awarded a European Social Risk Grant to deliver a 5 to 6 day “Internet Power” training program to selected groups from Pembrokeshire and Cardiff. To this end, WISE KIDS worked with Learning Pembrokeshire and MEWN Cymru (Minority Ethnic Women’s Network) respectively to deliver this training to interested participants from their network, or membership.
The aim of the Internet Power project was to provide participants with training on Internet safety issues, Internet proficiency and Positive Internet use in order that they may use the Internet more safely, efficiently and positively. Training on positive Internet use covers resources and tools to encourage online personal and community development, for example, setting up email discussion groups, websites, blogs and hot lists. The project was completed by the 21st of November, with three groups from Pembrokeshire and one group from MEWN Cymru having completed their training.

Digital Youth Stories Project

In December 2003, WISE KIDS received a second award of £10,000 from the European Social Risk Fund to deliver an innovative project for young people entitled Digital Youth Stories project. The aim of the project was to work directly and primarily with young people (16 to 20 year olds), by developing a program of training that used ICT as a means to improve their skills, create confidence, as well as to create awareness of Internet Safety issues and tools available to them on the Internet that can help them to contribute to their communities.
