Site Passerelles numériques

A gateway for life

Passerelles numériques (PN) is a French non-profit organisation created in 2005. Our mission is to enable 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 more than 460 students and employs around 100 people based in these three countries including a small team in France.

Passerelles numériques relies on the financial and skills sponsorship of several corporate partners such as Accenture, Econocom, JP Morgan and Microsoft and also receives support from individual donors.

In Vietnam, Passerelles Numériques started its mission in 2010, with a training center based in Da Nang, in Central Vietnam. In 2012, the first class graduated with 27 students and most of them had a job just after graduation. Today, PN Vietnam (PNV) trains 130 students and graduated 298 young disadvantaged since 2010
