Site Passerelles numériques
A gateway for life
Passerelles numériques (PN), a non-profit organisation, is dedicated to enabling highly disadvantaged youths, through their abilities and their commitment, to access education and technical and vocational training, in the sector of Information Technology. We work to build strong employability which will allow them and their families to sustainably escape poverty, and contribute to the social and economic development of their countries.
Established in Cambodia, the Philippines and Vietnam, Passerelles numériques currently trains 344 students. PN employs around 100 people based in these three countries including a small team in France.
Since 2005, 1 953 young talents completed with success their studies.
Passerelles numériques relies on the financial and skills sponsorship of several corporate partners such as Accenture and Econocom, and also receives support from individual donors.
In Cambodia, Passerelles numériques started its mission in 2005, with a training centre based in Phnom-Penh. In 2007, the first class graduated with 20 students, and most of them had a job just after graduation. Today, PN Cambodia (PNC) trains 146 students and 1 292 successfully completed their studies since 2005.
