In a collaborative effort to bridge the digital divide, 60 residents of Hampton County recently underwent a transformative training initiative hosted by Palmetto Care Connections, a nonprofit telehealth network. Held on January 30 and February 1 at the Hampton County Library, the program aimed to expand digital navigation services in the community.

Each participant was equipped with a tablet and received beginner tablet training to empower them in the digital realm. As a significant boost, all attendees were granted 12 months of free internet access, fostering a sustainable connection to the online world.

This initiative, made possible through funding from LISC (Local Initiatives Support Corporation), not only enhances individual digital literacy but also contributes to the broader goal of creating a digitally inclusive and empowered community in Hampton County. The ripple effects of this forward-looking effort are poised to be felt across various aspects of residents’ lives, from education to employment opportunities.
