Welcome to PONToon (Bienvenue à PONToon)

What is the PONToon Project?

The bridge to digital skills employment and empowerment.

(La passerelle vers l'emploi et l'autonomisation des compétences numériques.)

PONToon is an exciting project that will use a range of new and developing technologies such as games development, 3D/virtual reality, social media and web/mobile apps to engage, support and up-skill women in order to aid their employment opportunities.

The project is centred around community development, social and economic inclusion and equality. It aims to produce a method of working that's not only scalable and transferrable but also applicable to broader demographic sets and geographical regions for continuing impact.

(PONToon est un projet passionnant qui utilisera une gamme de technologies novatrices et/ou encore en cours de développement, telles que le développement de jeux, la réalité 3D/virtuelle, les médias sociaux et les applications web/mobiles, avec pour objectif d'impliquer, de soutenir et d'améliorer les compétences des femmes afin de les aider à trouver un emploi.

Le projet est centré sur le développement d'une communauté, l'inclusion sociale et économique et l'égalité. Il vise à produire une méthode de travail, non seulement évolutive et transférable, mais aussi applicable à des ensembles démographiques et des régions géographiques plus larges pour un impact continu.)

By using cross-border expertise, this project will provide engaging ways of teaching women how to use this technology. These skills will play an important role in helping these women find a job. (En utilisant l'expertise transfrontalière, ce projet fournira des moyens attrayants d'enseigner aux femmes comment utiliser cette technologie. Ces compétences joueront un rôle important pour aider ces femmes à trouver un emploi.)
