Close the Gap believes in nurturing synergies between ICT skills and job creation to bridge the digital divide. Close the Gap’s holistic approach to learning in ICT not only aims to provide computer literacy and skills-based knowledge, but hopes to encourage social entrepreneurship through digital innovation.

Like Close the Gap, POM also shares excitement for digital innovation. Aiming to provide efficiency, accessibility, and online social inclusiveness, POM has designed the ‘POM-app’ which simplifies the experience of processing incoming invoices. Both digital and paper invoices can be paid through the app, enabling a single go-to mobile destination for invoice administration.

POM is inviting new users to donate €1 to Close the Gap. “This way, our users are able to experience how easy it is to pay via POM and at the same time they are offered the opportunity to support social entrepreneurship,” says Johannes Vermeire, CEO of POM. “Doing so, as digital citizens they are actively contributing to closing the digital divide on our planet. Of course, as a responsible digital service provider, we’re very proud of that.

Donations will contribute to Close the Gap’s mission in providing refurbished IT-equipment to disadvantaged communities that are often denied access to tech-based learning in developing countries.

The POM app is available for free in the App Store and on Google Play.
