Go Digital ASEAN Develops Specialized Curricula for ASEAN Countries

Program Year: 2021

Implemented by The Asia Foundation, with support from Google.org, Google’s philanthropic arm, the initiative trained over 225,000 people from rural regions and underserved communities—including entrepreneurs, underemployed youth, and women.

Launched in June 2020, phase one of Go Digital ASEAN focused on closing the digital gap across ASEAN and was approved for implementation by the ASEAN Coordinating Committee on Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) during its 8th Meeting in November 2019. This initiative was designed to: equip micro and small enterprises and underemployed youth, particularly those in rural and isolated areas, with crucial digital skills and tools; expand economic opportunity across ASEAN Member States; and minimize the negative impact from the Covid-19 crisis.

In-country curricula focused on delivering content and digital skills to meet community-level needs and conditions.
