Bringing Tech and Digital Literacy to Disadvantaged Schools
Founder and Managing Director at MiDO Technologies, Dale Simons, is changing lives through technology and ensuring that the youth is prepared for the digital future.
For the past eight years, Dale Simons has been on a mission to prepare learners and teachers at disadvantaged schools across South Africa with digital skills for the future. This he does through the MiDO Foundation, the non-profit arm of MiDO Technologies (pronounced me-doh), the Jamestown-based company he founded after spending more than 15 years in senior roles in the fields of information and communication technology, and systems implementation, support and training for large corporate companies.
At MiDO, Dale creates digital hubs in underprivileged schools with the aim of changing lives. At these hubs, young people are connecting with opportunities to gain digital skills and learn about technology in a fun and exciting way.
