Go Digital ASEAN: Regional Impact Summary


Launched in June 2020, the Go Digital ASEAN initiative was designed to broaden digital participation to more than 200,000 people from rural regions and underserved communities—including women-led small- and micro-businesses, underemployed youth, ethnic minorities, and people with disabilities— in the ten ASEAN Member States – to create a more inclusive ASEAN region. The USD$3.3M regional initiative was spearheaded by The Asia Foundation, endorsed by the ASEAN Coordinating Committee on Micro, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (ACCMSME), and funded by Google’s philanthropic arm, Google.org. The impact report reveals micro and small businesses, as well as job seekers’ perceptions of the training program’s value in providing access to digital skills and tools amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
