Rappi and Microsoft present Tech for All, a program that allows the development of technological skills for delivery drivers and their families; educational and work development opportunities in the digital environment.
The Tech for All program aims to provide Rappi’s registered delivery drivers and their families with the necessary tools to access digital self-employment opportunities or job placement in positions that require technological skills.
Thanks to this program, based on Microsoft technology solutions, Rappi will be able to offer delivery drivers and their families the opportunity to acquire cutting-edge technology skills.
These include: digital literacy and productivity; soft skills; entrepreneurship and management skills; among others. This will enable them to improve their ability to work in the digital economy and access better professional development opportunities.

The program, which has no cost for Rappi registered delivery drivers, will be available in Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Chile, Costa Rica, Mexico, Argentina and Uruguay.
“At Rappi, we are always looking to generate growth opportunities for all delivery drivers by providing more and more benefits for their professional development and that of their families. With Microsoft’s experience and support, we are confident that this program will be a great success and will contribute to the prosperity of our delivery drivers and their communities,” said Alejandro Solis, Senior VP of Rappi for Latin America.
Microsoft aims to promote digital inclusion and support the development of technology skills in communities around the world.
“We are proud to collaborate with Rappi to offer delivery drivers and their families the opportunity to acquire cutting-edge technology skills that will enable them to improve their quality of life and succeed in today’s digital economy,” Jorge Cella, Regional Director of Philanthropy for Microsoft.
This program is expected to benefit more than 350,000 delivery drivers and their families in Latin America, and more than 110,000 in Mexico, providing them with the necessary tools to access better job opportunities and improve their quality of life.
It is very important to highlight that this program is aligned with the Decalogue of Shared Principles, a document created in collaboration with the collectives Ni Un Repartidor Menos, Ni Una Repartidora Menos, Nosotrxs and other digital platforms to promote the welfare of service providers connected to the platforms. In particular, with the principle in which the platforms commit to improve the quality of life of the delivery men and women through partnerships with third parties to promote, among others, educational programs.
