An app-based program which improves digital literacy and provides tools to improve health, financial, relationship and stress management.

RISE Digital is an app-based program which provides critical training for female and male workers and managers in global supply chains, including information on health, financial resilience, and tools for building harmonious relationships and handling stress. The program increases workers’ digital and tech literacy, especially among low-income women with low tech skills. RISE Digital enables suppliers to offer valuable worker training on essential topics.

The RISE Digital app was developed with workers in mind—ensuring usability for those with low tech literacy and low literacy levels. Once downloaded on tablets, the app is available offline, which is ideal for workplaces where connectivity is low. The app includes animations to teach core concepts, games to solidify understanding, and pre- and post- quizzes to assess learning.
