Transforming lives through digital literacy.


Nin Soon Yi is an 83-year-old resident of San Francisco who visits the Chinatown YWCA computer lab. He learned to use computers only three years ago. Feeling that it is easier to learn English than how to operate a computer, he very much appreciates a tutor, such as provided by Community Tech Network, to help him navigate the digital world.

Nin mostly uses the computer to keep updated on the news and watch YouTube. Through online videos, he has learned massage techniques in order to help with his wife’s knees. He has also learned how to treat issues with his feet, such that he no longer needs to use medication.

Lin has encouraged a friend to visit the computer lab, getting the word out to those who have not heard of these great resources available to them in San Francisco.
