Together for digital equality
The world is becoming more digital at a rapid pace and offers plenty of new opportunities, but not everyone in Finland has the devices or skills required in today’s digital society. For some, keeping up with the constant changes may be challenging.
DNA wants to contribute to the promotion of digital inclusion in Finland. In order to help those who are in the most vulnerable position we work in close cooperation with three strong partners: SOS Children’s Village, HelsinkiMissio and Hope ry. The aim of the cooperation is to prevent digital exclusion of children and young people, senior citizens, and low-income families.
On this page, you can read more about our partners and cooperation.
SOS Children’s Village
Sometimes parents are unable to care for their children alone, or children are at risk of losing their parents' care. SOS Children's Village helps these children.
We support the operations of the child welfare organisation SOS Children's Village financially in various ways as their main partner. Our partnership dates back to 2011.
“Our partnership with DNA has always been inspiring and bold. Over the years, we have worked together to carry out numerous innovative campaigns that have allowed SOS Children’s Village to support and promote digital inclusion of more children, families and young people.”

SOS Children’s Village
DNA supports HelsinkiMissio in the organisation’s work to mitigate the loneliness of the elderly. DNA’s sponsorship is channelled to digital assistance for senior citizens, i.e. personal assistance intended to help those who want to improve their digital skills.
“Digitalisation continues to pose a challenge for senior citizens. HelsinkiMissio and DNA have a shared goal of preventing digital exclusion of senior citizens. We aim to achieve this goal by offering digital assistance free of charge. DNA employees also have the opportunity to participate in various HelsinkiMissio volunteer work to improve the situation.”
DNA has made an agreement with Hope ry to donate devices for low-income families. DNA’s sponsorship is directed according to the needs reported by Hope and it enables the charity’s work for the benefit of families with limited means.
“Cooperation with DNA has gone smoothly and met the need we have for local assistance. Our humanitarian activities are very concrete, and our cooperation has also offered concrete help in the form of donated devices that make everyday life easier for children and young people whose families would not otherwise be able to afford such devices.”
