Eldy is a project to bring elderly to an enriching web and computer experience.
Eldy is the name of the project, the name of the freeware software and the name of the no-profit organization behind the initiative.
With Eldy seniors can use email, browse the web, chat, get weather info, see digital pictures, streaming, etc, in a clear GUI, with big labels in a friendly language.
Eldy is both easy and nice – so the experience is effective and entertaining. Eldy has over 150.000 users in Europe and is a fast growing community given the strategy of Local Public administration, that is strongly helping the diffusion of the software (i.e : over 1.400.000 cd’s are being distributed and a lot of training initiatives are being put on place).
Eldy is free of charge perpetual and has no commercial contents (ads)
Because we thought someone had do to it, we decided to do it and we did it for free, no profit.
Now a lot of people and Administrations are supporting us, so we can keep on making it better and better – every day.
Let’s the elderly enjoy the internet the way we do!!!
