Doncaster social enterprise bridges the digital divide on a multi-ethnic level
In recent training sessions, Yetunde Elebuibon, founder of Knowledge Pool, and her team have supported people from no less than ten different countries alongside those who have resided in Doncaster all their lives.
“In a class last night I was teaching two people from China, two from Iraq, three from Nigeria and three from Doncaster,” says Yetunde.
“The atmosphere was great with lots of laughs and every student really enjoyed the session, learning new skills and making new friends in the process.

“We are now planning to launch more online courses which will focus on showing people how to get the most out of Microsoft Office 365. This platform is widely used by businesses and there is a huge demand among our students, especially those looking to advance their careers or change jobs, to ensure they can master the relevant applications and software.”
Yetunde added: “With around 10% of the UK’s adult population (around 5.3 million people) classed as ‘non-internet users’, there is a lot of work to be done to ensure that everyone in society is digitally included and has at least one of the five basic digital skills.
Knowledge Pool is a social enterprise run solely by volunteers and entirely dependent on external funding and donations. If you would like to find out more about their training courses, volunteer your time to support others or make a donation, call Yetunde on 07427 262448 or email: [email protected]
