Passerelles numériques (PN), a non-profit organisation, is dedicated to enabling highly disadvantaged youths, through their abilities and their commitment, to access education and technical and vocational training, in the sector of Information Technology. We work to build strong employability which will allow them and their families to sustainably escape poverty, and contribute to the social and economic development of their countries.

Established in Cambodia, the Philippines and Vietnam, Passerelles numériques currently trains 533 students and aims to train 750 in the next three years. PN employs 102 people based in these three countries including a small team in France.

Passerelles numériques relies on the financial and skills sponsorship of several corporate partners such as Accenture, Econocom-Osiatis, CA Technologies, Microsoft and Société Générale and also receives support from individual donors.

In Vietnam, Passerelles numériques started its mission in 2010, with a training centre based in Da Nang, in Central Vietnam. In 2012, the first class graduated with 27 students, and most of them had a job just after graduation. Today, PN Vietnam (PNV) trains 87 students and graduated 258 young disadvantaged since 2010.
